Adaptation to culture conditions and feeding behaviour of common sole (Solea solea), which caught from natural environment, were investigated in this research. Soles were captured in March-April 2007 period from Izmir Bay by trawl and gill nets. During preliminary adaptation of totally 270 soles, antibiotic treatment (furozolidon added 100 ppm for 60 min./day) was applied for first five days in dark environment. In culture conditions, squid (Loligo vulgaris), long-yawed plume worm (Diopatra neopolitana), mediterranean mussel (Mytilus galloprovincialis), razor clam (Solen marginatus), oyster (Ostrea edulis), patella (Patella spp.), sea snail (Monodonta turbinata) and fresh sardine (Sardine pilchardus) were used for first feeding. Soles started to feed in 0-2 days and long-yawed plume worm was the most preferred species. After adaptation period of one month, the survival rate (58%) of soles which were caught using gill nets was found out significantly higher than the survival rate (29%) of soles which were caught using trawl (p <0.05). 

Trol ve uzatma ağları ile İzmir körfezinden yakalanan dil (Solea solea) balığının yaşama yüzdesi; kültür şartlarına adaptasyonu ve beslenme davranışı. Bu araştırmada, doğal ortamdan yakalanan dil balığının (Solea solea), kültür şartlarına adaptasyonu ve beslenme davranışı incelenmiştir. Dil balıkları, 2007 Mart-Nisan döneminde, İzmir Körfezi’nden trol ve uzatma ağlarıyla yakalanmıştır. 270 adet dil balığının ön adaptasyonu sırasında, ilk beş gün boyunca, karanlık ortamda antibiyotik (100 ppm fruzolidon ilavesi, 60 dak/gün) uygulaması gerçekleştirilmiştir. Kültür şartlarında ilk besleme için, kalamar (Loligo vulgaris), boru kurdu (Diopatra neopolitana), kara midye (Mytilus galloprovincialis), sülünes (Solen marginatus), istiridye (Ostrea edulis), japon şapkası (Patella spp.), deniz salyangozu (Monodonta turbinata) ve taze sardalya (Sardina pilchardus) kullanılmıştır. Dil balıkları 0-2 gün içinde beslenmeye başlamıştır ve boru kurdu, en çok tercih ettikleri tür olmuştur. Bir aylık adaptasyon dönemi sonunda, uzatma ağlarıyla yakalanan dil balıklarının yaşama oranının (%58), trol ile yakalananların yaşama oranından (%29) önemli düzeyde yüksek bulunmuştur (p
