The length-weight relationships (LWRs) of a total of 16 species belonging to the genus Pseudophoxinus were analysed. Fish samples were collected by electroshocker (DEKA 3000 portable electroshocker; frequency 50-55 Hz; 50-60 cm fishing depth) and gill nets (for the purchased from fishermen) in some water bodies in Anatolia from June 2006 to January 2014. The values of parameter b in the LWR equations varied from 2.756 (Pseudophoxinus firati) to 3.407 (P. elizavetae). This study also provides a new maximum length data for three species (P. anatolicus, P. mehmeti, P. zeregi).
