As the amount of SCT fuel (tons) – the amount of subvention (₺) - amount of fishery landings (tons), respectively; It was calculated 273.098 tons - 427.239.647 ₺ - 3.113.476 tons for the Black Sea, 232.951 ton - 356.733.841₺ - 387.840 tons for the Marmara, 172.072 tons - 265.278.577 ₺ - 378.133 tons for the Aegean and 152.382 tons - 228.406.677 ₺ - 211.819 tons for the Mediterranean. From the entire fishery areas, the total amount of 830,503 tons fuel was consumed for a total of 4,091,268 tons of fishery landings. The average quantity of fishery landing obtained per liter of fuel was calculated 9.58 kg for the Black Sea, 1.40 kg for the Marmara, 1.85 kg for the Aegean and 1.17 kg for the Mediterranean. Comparing the kg fishing landing obtained per liter of the fishing areas by year, it was found that there was a significant difference (P <0.05) between the areas in all years except for the year of 2016. This difference was due to the fact that the amount of product obtained in the Black Sea was considerably higher than the other areas. In the ten years period, the monetary value of the fishing landings from all of Turkey`s exclusive economic zone was calculated to be 10.560.952.248₺ Keywords : Fishery, Landings, Fuel subvention, Exclusive economic zone
