A STOCK DIFFERENTIATION STUDY OF THE SPRAT (SPRATTUS-SPRATTUS-PHALERICUS RISSO) OFF THE SOUTHERN COAST OF THE BLACK-SEA

AVSAR, D
Stock differentiation studies of sprat (Sprattus sprattus phalericus Risso) from the Black Sea coast of Turkey have been carried out morphometrically and meristically applying the generalised distance of Mahalanobis (GDM) and also physiologically using three-level nested ANOVA (TLNA). Fifteen morphometric measurements, together with nine meristic counts and fat concentration of wet tissues of sprat have been used in the analyses of GDM and TLNA, respectively. Insufficient differences in general phenotypic, genotypic (P>0.01) and physiological (P>0.05) characteristics implied the existence of a single unit stock. Samples collected in the same period showed greater similarity than those taken from the same areas in different periods.

The experimental analysis on the Late Quaternary deposits of the Black Sea
Tekiroglu, SE; Ediger, V; Yemenicioglu, S; Kapur, S; Akca, E (Elsevier BV, 2001-01-01)
Holocene sediments taken from the south-eastern and western Black Sea have been investigated in relation to their geochemical, sedimentological and mineralogical characteristics. Their textures are characterized by their low amount of sand, upward-increasing silt and downward-increasing clay contents. While the terrigenous materials transported from Anatolian volcanic-based sources and European alluvial sediments form the shore deposits, the deep-sea sediments mainly consist of the marine biological product...
The role of mesoscale processes controlling biological variability in the Black Sea coastal waters: inferences from SeaWIFS-derived surface chlorophyll field
Oguz, T; Deshpande, AG; Malanotte-Rizzoli, P (Elsevier BV, 2002-06-01)
Several different time series of chlorophyll images from the 1997-2000 Seaviewing, Wide Field-of-view Sensor data set have been analysed to gain a perspective on the dynamical and biological variability in the Black Sea, particularly oil its northwestern shelf region and along the Anatolian coastal zone. The images are interpreted in terms of documenting the close link between biological production and physical dynamics of the boundary system, and of emphasizing the role of eddy processes on controlling mes...
Assessment of pollution in the West Black Sea Coast of Turkey using biomarker responses in fish
BOZCAARMUTLU, AZRA; Sapmaz, Canan; Aygun, Zuleyha; Arinc, Emel (Elsevier BV, 2009-05-01)
Aim of this study was to determine the extent of pollution in the West Black Sea Coast of Turkey by measuring CYP1A associated EROD activity, phase II enzyme, glutathione S-transferase and antioxidant enzymes, catalase and glutathione reductase activities and immunochemical detection of CYP1A protein level in the liver of mullet. The fish samples were caught from six locations having a varying degree of pollution in the West Black Sea Region of Turkey in August 2005, 2006 and 2007. Mullets caught from Zongu...
Ecological features of the lessepsian migrant Leonnates persicus (Polychaeta : Nereididae) from the Levant coast of Turkey
Ergev, MB; Cinar, ME; Mutlu, E; Ergen, Z (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2003-12-01)
The seasonal distribution of Leonnales persicus was studied along depth transects (10-200 m) of three stations located in the Levant Sea during February-November 2000. Leonnates persicus particularly dominated the slightly gravelly sand bottom of stations between 10 and 150 m. Its distributional pattern showed a seasonal trend: it inhabited depths between 40 and 150 m in February and May when surface temperature was below 21degreesC, whereas it preferred shallower waters (10-60 m) during the warm season (>2...
A statistical riverine litter propagation model
Balas, CE; Williams, AT; Simmons, SL; Ergin, Ayşen (Elsevier BV, 2001-11-01)
A statistical riverine litter propagation (RLP) model based on importance sampling Monte Carlo (ISMC) simulation was developed in order to predict the frequency distribution of certain litter types in river reaches. The model was preliminarily calibrated for plastic sheeting by a pilot study conducted on the River Taff, Wales (UK). Litter movement was predominantly controlled by reach characteristics, such as vegetation overhang and watercourse obstructions. These affects were modeled in the simulations, by...
