Abstract

This research presents the otoliths belonging to 31 species under 23 families of Teleost fishes caught by the various fishing gear from the Black Sea coast of Turkey. The photographs of otoliths were taken from proximal and distal surfaces using the black background colour. This is the first study on this subject for the Black Sea fish species. This work is aimed to guide research studies in this region.
