In this study, length-weight relationships (LWRs) and length-length relationships (LLRs) for Rhodeus amarus sampled from the Terme and Terice Stream were calculated in April-November 2016.  A total of 117 fish specimens (from Terme = 57, from Terice= 60) were examined.  Total, fork and standard length were measured (±0.1 cm) and weighted (±0.01 g) for all captured fish.  Total length varies between 4.5 and 8.9 cm, weight varies between 0.730-0.940 g for all populations.  Length-weight equations were calculated as W=0.005TL3.479 and W=0.004TL3.586 for Terme and Terice, respectively.  According to analyses bitterling has positive allometric growth for two localities.  Length-length relationships equations show that total, fork and standard length values are very strong between each other (P˂0.001, coefficient of determination˃0.95).
