DOI: 10.28978/nesciences.1036856


In this study, a female specimen of common sole (Solea solea) with 36.7 cm in total length and 466.0 g in total weight was caught off Ordu region (eastern Black Sea, Turkey) with trammel net at 10 m water depth on May 6, 2021. The age of specimen was determined to be 6 years old. Measured total length were the maximum value of Solea solea in the Turkish coast of Black Sea.
