Özet

Length-length and length-weight relationships were studied for four endemic Cyprinid species from the Kucuk Menderes River Basin located in the Western Anatolian region of Turkey. Fish were sampled from Tahtal and Beyda reservoirs, Bulgurca, Saal and Azmak streams during 2013-2014, using multimesh gillnets in the reservoirs and by electrofishing in the streams. First records of length-weight relationships for Barbus pergamonensis Karaman, 1971, Squalius kosswigi (Karaman, 1972) and Petroleuciscus smyrnaeus (Boulenger, 1896) are reported in addition to three new maximum total lengths for Chondrostoma holmwoodii (Boulenger, 1896), Squalius kosswigi (Karaman, 1972) and Petroleuciscus smyrnaeus (Boulenger, 1896).
