Abstract

OTOLITH SIZE-TOTAL LENGTH RELATIONSHIP IN SPINY EEL, Mastacembelus mastacembelus (BANKS & SOLANDER, 1794) INHABITING IN KARAKAYA DAM LAKE (MALATYA, TURKEY)

In this study, the relationships between total length and sagittal otolith size of a total 187 specimens belonging to the Mastacembelus mastacembelus (Banks & Solander, 1794) fish species inhabiting Karakaya Dam Lake were examined. The otolith lengths and widths were ranged between 1.44-3.82 mm and 0.8-1.71 mm, respectively. However, otolith weights were determined between 0.0003-0.0038 g. There was a stronger and positive linear relationship between the otolith size (length, width and weight) and total lengths.
