Abstract: Aphanius fasciatus (Valenciennes, 1821), is a cyprinodontid euryhaline fish occur in many brackish water habitats along the Mediterranean coasts. The current study aims to update the range of A. fasciatus (Mediterranean Killifish, South European Toothcarp) along river estuaries and lagoon systems of Mediterranean coast of Turkey, and to determine its length–weight relationship. A total of 15 sites were surveyed from November 2014 to June 2017. Altogether, 69 specimens were sampled and measured from different systems. At each locality, the general observations on the population, length-weight relationships, its situation and threats were presented.
