The bluefish, Pomatomus saltatrix, obtained from the Sea of Marmara was investigated for ageing and the relationship between otolith length and fork length. A total of 688 sagittal otoliths were measured through the anterior to posterior by digital callipers. The maximum fork length was measured 342 mm versus 10,1 mm otolith length. Naturally, otolith lengths increase with fork length.
