In this study, the length/width-weight relationship of the Carcinus aestuarii Nardo, 1847 (Decapoda, Brachyura) in the Homa Lagoon were investigated during the summer period 2006. A total of 656 specimens, 555 (84.6 %) males and 101 (15.4 %) females, were collected and analyzed for the length/width-weight relationship. The carapace width (CW) ranged from 20.80 mm to 52.09 mm of male and ranged from 19.95 to 40.75 mm of females. Carapace length/width-weight relationship was found to be as W=0.00043.115 (r: 0.974) and W=0.00023.132 (r: 0.972).
