The length-weight relationships (LWRs) of Alburnus istanbulensis Battalgil, 1941, Barbus tauricus Kessler, 1877, Cobitis pontica Vasil'eva & Vasil'ev, 2006, Cobitis strumicae Karaman, 1955, Gobio bulgaricus Drensky, 1926, Phoxinus strandjae Drensky, 1926 and Squalius orpheus Kottelat & Economidis, 2006 were analysed. Fish samples were collected by electroshocker (SAMUS 725 G and SAMUS 725 M portable electroshockers; frequency 50-55 Hz; 30-70 cm fishing depth) in some water bodies in Turkish Thrace from March 2012 to August 2017. The values of parameter b in the LWR equations varied from 2.916 (B. tauricus) to 3.336 (P. strandjae). This study also provides a new maximum length data for A. istanbulensis, G. bulgaricus, P. strandjae and S. orpheus.
