Recent events in the Black Sea have had a severe impact on all compartments of the ecosystem, including ichthyoplankton. The distribution of eggs and larvae of the anchovy, the major commercial fish species, was investigated in relation to ambient conditions in the southern Black Sea during July 1992, August 1993, and June-July 1996. Average highest egg and larva numbers were observed in June-July 1996, Ichthyoplankton distribution was closely connected with the hydrography. Besides surface temperature and salinity, among the numerous biotic parameters tested, abundance of fodder zooplankton and of the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi showed significant correlations with the distribution of either eggs or larvae of the anchovy. The results help in explaining the shift observed in the spawning grounds. (C) 1999 International Council for the Exploration of the Sea.

Impact of a new invasive ctenophore (Mnemiopsis leidyi) on the zooplankton community of the Southern Caspian sea

The invasive ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi (Agassiz), which was transported from the Black Sea into the Caspian Sea at the end of the 1990s, has negatively affected the ecosystem of the Caspian Sea. Zooplankton abundance, biomass and species composition were evaluated on the Iranian coast of the Caspian Sea during 2001-2006. A total of 18 merozooplankton (13 species composed of larvae of benthic animals) and holozooplankton (four Copepoda and one Cladocera) species were identified. The total number of zoopla...
Controls of Multiple Stressors on the Black Sea Fishery
Oguz, Temel (2017-01-01)
Black Sea is one of the most severely degraded and exploited large marine ecosystems in the world. For the last 50 years after the depletion of large predatory fish stocks, anchovy (with the partial contribution of sprat) has been acting as the main top predator species and experienced a major stock collapse at the end of 1990s. After the collapse, eastern part of the southern Black Sea became the only region sustaining relatively high anchovy catch (400,000 tons) whereas the total catch within the rest of ...
The diel vertical distribution of zooplankton in the southeast Black Sea
Erkan, F.; Gücü, Ali Cemal; Zagorodnyaya, J. (2000-01-01)
The diel changes in the vertical distribution of zooplankton in the southeast Black Sea were described in this study. The zooplankton were sampled using two different sampling methods throughout one day in October 1996 and July 1997 at the same station. The zooplankton counts, the length measurements and biomass estimates showed that the zooplankton in the southeast Black Sea is dominated by small organisms, among which Noctiluca scintillans is the dominant species. In the vertical distribution of zooplankt...
Comparative Study on Lipid Qaulity of Distribution and Abundance of Mnemiopsis in the Eastern Iranian Coasts of the Caspian Sea
Roohi, A.; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan; Fazlı, H. (2003-01-01)
The alien ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi which was transported from the Black Sea into the Caspian Sea at the end of 1990s has been negatively affecting ecosystem in this new environment. In this study, spatial and temporal distribution of M.leidyi were studied from a total of stations located along three transects (Amirabad, Babolsar and Nowshar) in the Eeastern Iranian coasts of the Caspian Sea (Mazandaran province) during July 2001 to November 2002. M. leidyi acheived maximum biomass 1024.5 g/m2 in August-...
Study of Copepod Species from the Western Black Seain the Cruise r/v Knorr during May June 2001
Selifonova, Janet P; Shmeleva, Alexandra A; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan (Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, 2008-01-01)
Results of investigation of copepod fauna in the western Black Sea are obtained in May-June 2001. 49 taxa have been found including 33 taxa that are not of the Black Sea origin. The problem of intensifi cation of process of copepod fauna Mediterranization in the Black Sea basin is discussed.
