The length-weight relationships (LWRs) for 10 freshwater fish species in catchment area of Busan Metropolitan City, South Korea, were analyzed. Fish samples were collected quarterly using scoop-nets (mesh 5 mm), casting nets (mesh 7 mm) and gill nets (mesh 20, 50 and 70 mm) from 2011 to 2016. LWRs data for seven of these species have not yet been listed in FishBase.
