The study was carried out monthly between April 2000 and December 2001 on the seagrass and/or sandy bottom in shallow waters of Erdek Bay (Sea of Marmara, Turkey). Samples were collected using 35 m long beach seine. Fish samples were identified, measured and weighed. The length-weight relationships of juvenile and adult specimens of 36 fish species were investigated. The parameters a and b were calculated by functional regression, as was the coefficient of determination ( r 2 ). r 2 values were… Expand
