Anadara corneais going to be one of the target species of the dredging fishery along the continental shelf of the Turkish Black Sea coast. Although it has not been exploited yet, studies on the distribution, growth and meat quality have been carried out. In this study, growth parameters were estimated after determining the cohorts by the "Bhattacharya" method. Four year classes were distinguished and using the corresponding lengths of these, von Bertalanffy growth parameters and the length - weight relationship were found to be L ° =75.24 mm, K= 0.370 and t o = -0.103 and W= 0.0015L 2.619 , respectively.
