In this study, production volume, price and value analyses of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and sea bream (Sparus aurata) produced in Turkey for the years 2005-2014 were conducted. Turkey is the second largest aquaculture country after Norway and the annual Turkish aquaculture production has reached 235133 tons in 2014. 48.31% (113.593 tons) of this production comprises rainbow trout, 31.75% comprises (74.653 tons) sea bass and 17.81% comprises (41.873 tons) sea bream. Examining the prices for the years 2005-2014, it was determined that the price for rainbow trout varied between 3.88 USD and 2.20 USD (freshwater) and between 4.83 USD and 3.27 USD (sea) while the price for sea bass changed between 6.29 USD and 4.68 USD, and the price for sea bass changed between 6.12 USD and 3.60 USD. It was found that the annual production values of the species increased based on the amount of production, and the highest value was determined in 2012 with 402.22 million USD in sea bass. It was found that the selling price and the total value of production of the species were affected by the production volume of the species, domestic and foreign export demand and the exchange rates.
