This study investigates length–weight relationships (LWR) and length–length relationships (LLRs) of three length measurements (TL, FL, SL) for the Mediterranean population of the Indo-Pasific fourlined terapon, Pelates quadrilineatus. A total of 134 specimens were collected, and LWR for females, males and both sexes, were calculated as W= 0.0037TL3.5094, W= 0.0057TL3.3378 and W= 0.0046TL3.4249 respectively. The length-length regressions were significant (P<0.001) for all species, with all r2 values greater than 0.930.
