Viewed : 1039 - Downloaded : 2513 Relationships between total (TL), fork (FL) and standard (SL) lengths belonging 19 families from Aegean and Marmara coast of Turkey were presented for 42 fish species. The relationships between TL, FL and SL were all linear and they were all highly significant (P<0.001) with all r2 values being >0.90. There were significant differences in the slope of length – length relationships between some localities and type of length conversions for the fish species.
