In this study, length and weight data for three endemic fish species of North-western Anatolia (Capoeta baliki, Capoeta sieboldii and Chondrostoma angorense) were collected throughout their distribution ranges and used to estimate length-length, total length (TL) - weight and empirical standard weight (W-s) equations. The obtained W-s equations were: log(10)W(s) = -6.743 + 4.768 log(10) TL - 0.437 log(10) TL2 (TL range: 7-28 cm) for C. baliki; log(10)W(s) = - 5.966 + 3.833 log(10)TL - 0.181 log(10) TL2 (TL range: 7-36 cm) for C. sieboldii; log(10)W(s) = - 10.017 + 7.402 log(10)TL - 0.971 log(10)TL(2) (TL-range: 7-24 cm) for C. angorense. For C. angorense, these data represent the first reference on length-weight relationship for this species. In addition, a new maximum length was reported for C. baliki.
