AbstractThis study is related to the investigation of the growth properties of pike (Esox lucius L., 1758) in Kapulukaya Dam Lake. There were 328 fish caught between November 2002 â€“ October 2003 ranging between I - VII years of age. Von Bertalanffy growth equations for the females and males were found as Lt = 1678.98 (1 â€“ e â€“ 0.045 ( t + 4.25 ) ), andÂ Lt = 803.18 Â Â Â Â (1 â€“ e â€“ 0.142 ( t + 3.09 ) ). Length-weight relations for the females and males were Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â W = 0.00004532 Ã— L 2.7105 and W = 0.00023207 Ã— L 2.4372. The condition factor for the general population was found as 0.806.
