Objective: The current work was carried out between 2013-2014 during the fishing periods to evaluate certain fish aggloremations within 3 miles of the coastal zone. Therefore, some basic characteristics of fish populations along the Inceburun coast of the Sinop province of the Black Sea were examined.

Materials and Methods: Data was collected from 5 trawl operations in the Sinop-Inceburun Region of the Black Sea at depths of 20 to 39 meters at 5 different locations. Biometric measurements of each species was made. A literature search was performed to gather information about the status of threatened fish species found in the region. The length-weight parameters of 4 commercial fish species were estimated.

Results: During the fishing season between 1st September 2013 and 15th April 2014 different fish species were captured depending on the season and climate. In these surveys, 16 teleost species from 15 families, 2 elasmobranch species from 2 families and 2 species of invertebrates were recorded from 5 different stations. In these surveys random samples of red mullet, bluefish, horse mackerel, turbot etc. were collected from 5 different stations. The total mean CPUA was estimated at 425.30 kg/km2.

Conclusion: The Black Sea areas including those around the Sinop coast have an important effect on the entire production of sea fish of the Turkish fishery. In addition, Sinop fisheries generate significant fishery production supporting logistics and employment. In the Sinop peninsula, there is an increasing trend towards the production of commercial species of the Black Sea.
