The paper presents the results of studies on meristic and biometric parameters in spined loach, Cobitis taenia (L.) from Zegrzyński Dam Reservoir. Body proportions were determined as well as the relations between the parameters under study and body and head length. Statistically significant differences were found in the values of some biometric parameters m males and females. The results were compared with the ĺata from the lit- erature of spined loach populations in which the species Cobitis taenia was well defined.
