Abstract

The relationships between length-weight, and meat yield of freshwater crayfish, Astacus leptodactylus, in the Ağın Region of Keban Dam Lake, were investigated. In both sexes a linear relation was found between carapace length and wet body weight (r^2_males= 0.923 and r^2_females= 0.882). In addition, regression coefficients (slopes) showed that negative allometric body weight increase occurs in both sexes (slope_ males= 2.66 and slope_ females = 2.51). For a certain size range (46-58 mm carapace), the abdomen width of females was found to be significantly larger (P
