Daquq (Arabic: داقوق, Turkish: Dakuk or Tavuk) is a town in Iraq south of Kirkuk. It is the capital of Daquq District, one of the four Districts of Kirkuk Governorate. It lies just south of Taza. The town is known for its tea and mosque. It is situated on the Daquq river, of which the floodwaters in spring are said to join the Tigris.
Up to the end of the 14th century AD, Daquq was for the most part administratively and economically superior to neighbouring Kirkuk.
In 2011, an estimated 7.3% of Daquq residents lived below the poverty line.
