DOI : 10.17693/yunusae.vi.278434 Viewed : 3055 - Downloaded : 1545 In this study, the length-weight relationships and length-length relationships were determined for A. mossulensis and A. marmid (Heckel, 1843)) collected in the 15 different site of Karasu River (Tributary of Fırat River). A total of 228 individuals for A. mossulensis and 365 for A. marmid were caught by electroshocker between October 2014 and September 2015. The total length-weight relationships were estimated as W=0.0128L2.81 (r2=0.93) for A. mossulensis and W=0.0055L3.30 (r2=0.97) for A. marmid. The types of growth for all specimens were found negative allometric for A. mossulensimarmid (Heckel, 1843)) collected in the 15 different site of Karasu River (Tributary of Fırat River). A total of 228 individuals for A. mossulensis and 365 for A. marmid were caught by electroshocker between October 2014 and September 2015. The total length-weight relationships were estimated as W=0.0128L2.81 (r2=0.93) for A. mossulensis and W=0.0055L3.30 (r2=0.97) for A. marmid. The types of growth for all specimens were found negative allometric for A. mossulensis and positive allometric for A. marmid. Length-length relationships were calculated as TL=0.3611+1.0737FL, FL=0.3132+1.0549SL and SL=0.0709+0.8325TL for A. mossulensis and TL=0.2043+1.0767FL, FL=0.1062+1.0999SL and SL=0.1125+0.8047TL for A. marmid.
