Abstract

Analyses of the morphometric characteristics presented in this manuscript has been done prior Leuciscus cephalus albus change its systematic status to Squalius platyceps. Consequently, data obtained for this white chub population were compared with comparable data for chub populations in aquatic ecosystems in Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Italy. Out of 27 studied white chub morphometric characteristics, 23 ones are analyzed in percentages related to standard length of body, while 4 morphometric characteristics are studied in the relation to the head length. Morphometric characteristics of white chub are analyzed on high number of samples, i.e. 400 individuals classified in six length groups that provides more comprehensive and accurate data for this species, for the first time.
