The aim of this study was to determine the population parameters of Alburnus caeruleus in the Merzimen Stream, Euphrates Basin. A total of 347 specimens were analyzed the age varied from 0-III and the majority of them are II. age (44.45%) followed by I., III. and 0 age classes, respectively. Total length ranged from 2.6 to 8.4cm and weight varied from 0.11 to 6.82g, and the average length and weight were calculated as 5.53±1.12cm and 1.83±1.23g, respectively. The length-weight relationship was expressed as W=0.0062*TL3.221. The von Bertalanffy growth parameters were found as L∞: 10.50 cm, k: 0.3665 and to: -0.89, growth coefficient was Φꞌ: 3.7 and condition factor was K: 0.37. Total, natural and fishing mortalities rates and exploitation rate were estimated as Z: 0.79, M: 0.55, F: 0.24 and E: 0.30, respectively.
