Abstract

Biometric properties of the sand smelt Atherina boyeri Risso, 1810 from the Izmir Bay (Aegean Sea)

In this study was investigated some biometric properties of the sand smelt, Atherina boyeri Risso, 1810, population in Izmir Bay (Aegean Sea). Minimum and maximum total lengths of 596 sample collected from Izmir Bay between December 2002 and October 2003 were deter-mined as 43 and 97 mm, respectively. The total length (TL)-weight (W) relationship was com-puted as W=0.000003*L3.196 (r2=0.932, n=596). The length frequency and thirteen morphomet-ric characters were examined for samples. As a result of regression analysis, individuals of sand smelt were shown positive allometric growth in the research area 3.196± [0.064
