Estimation of the growth parameters of fish are vital to understand their biology. For this purpose we collected studies that performed up to 2017 regarding the growth of species belonging to the Diplodus genus. Data were gathered from sources like Web of Science (webofknowledge.com), Scopus (scopus.com), Google Scholar (scholar.google.com), Researchgate (researchgate.com) and Academia (academia.edu). 79 datasets from 52 different studies belongs to 10 species were compiled. Reviewed studies were published between 1982 - 2017 and were performed in 26 different regions. It was determined that the most frequently studied species was D. vulgaris (n=23). Among growth parameters, it was determined that there is a negative relationship between K and L∞, and K and tmax, there is a positive relationship between L∞and Lmax. It was also found that there is a negative relationship between K and L∞vs latitude.
