ABSTRACT. – Growth of juvenile Diplodus puntazzo from the Kornati Archipelago, eastern middle Adriatic Sea was analysed. Atotal of 663 juveniles, ranging in length from 1.6 to 9.3 cm, were caught. Most individuals (98.80%) belonged to the 0 cohort. The first settlers, aged 2.0-2.5 months, were recorded at the end of November. Relationship between total length and weight indicates positive allometric growth (b = 3.181). The condition factor, as a consequence of length-weight relationship, was CF = 1.55. The Gompertz equation (c = 0.038 mm days-1; R2 = 0.832) seems to be the most appropriate for the description of young D. puntazzo growth.
