Büyük Menderes


(known in antiquity as the Meander), a river in western Turkey. Length, 380 km. It rises on the Anatolian Plateau and flows into the Aegean Sea, forming a delta. In its lower course the riverbed is very twisting—which explains why its ancient name, “Meander,” came to denote the twisting course of rivers.

For the first time, we investigate the aspect of bio-ecological of chub (Squalius cephalus L., 1758) in upper Akcay River (Buyuk Menderes Basin) including the age, growth, length-weight relationship and reproduction.
cephalus is native fish species of Akcay River (Buyuk Menderes Basin) and this fish is consumed locally.
The populations of these species suffers from excessive poaching during reproduction period, habitat loss, increase in number of dams (such as Kemer, Topcam, Cine Dam Lakes), agricultural pesticide use in Buyuk Menderes Basin (Sasi and Berber, 2013; Sasi and Ozay, 2014).
