A total of 1190 specimens of bogue, Boops boops, were collected by gillnet and trammel net fishing between January 2005 and December 2005 in Izmir Bay (Aegean Sea of Turkey). Fish size in total length ranged from 9.2cm (minimum) in September to 27.6cm (maximum) in January. The length-weight relationships were determined for males, females, hermaphrodites and combined sexes as W=0.0021L3.522, W=0.0044L3.27, W=0.0037L3.350 and W=0.0035L3.419 respectively. The results indicated further that the length-length relationships were highly correlated (r²>0.990, P<0.001).
