This study presents the first estimation of the length-weight relationship (LWR) for nine species of the genus Salmo that have been caught during 2009-2014 along with three predefined species from the same genus in the inland waters of Turkey. The allometric coefficient b of the LWR ranged from 3.051 to 3.256, with a mean (+/- SD) of 3.127 +/- 0.018. We also found a new maximum total length for S. abanticus (45.1 cm), S. chilo (34.4 cm) and S. caspius (29.9 cm).
