Modeling the impact of climate variability on Black Sea anchovy recruitment and production
Güraslan, Ceren; Fach Salihoğlu, Bettina Andrea; Oğuz, Temel (2014-09-01)
The connection of climate variability with anchovy spawning and recruitment in the Black Sea in particular, and other ecosystems in general, was studied using a two-way coupled lower trophic level and anchovy bioenergetics model. Climate variability was represented by a 50-yr time series of daily temperature and vertical mixing rates with stochastic variations. Temperature was found to be the dominant factor influencing early life stages and hence population dynamics of Black Sea anchovy as marked by a high...

Black Sea anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus ponticus) undertake extensive (~1000km long) overwintering migration in autumn from northern spawning grounds to the overwintering areas located at the south-eastern coasts of the Black Sea. When arriving at the Anatolian coast, they support important fisheries in Turkey. Black Sea anchovy is known to experience stock variability quite frequently including stock collapses, which are believed to be closely linked with environmental conditions. Therefore, it is of imp...
Modeling the impact of tidal flows on the biological productivity of the Alboran Sea
Sanchez-Garrido, Jose C.; Naranjo, C.; Macias, D.; Garcia-Lafuente, J.; Oguz, T. (2015-11-01)
The control of phytoplankton production by tidal forcing in the Alboran Sea is investigated with a high-resolution ocean circulation model coupled to an ecosystem model. The aim of the modeling efforts was to elucidate the role of tides in sustaining the high biological productivity of the Alboran Sea, as compared with the rest of the Mediterranean subbasins. It is shown that tidal forcing accounts for an increase of phytoplankton biomass and primary productivity in the basin of about 40% with respect to a ...
Modeling the influence of hydrodynamic processes on anchovy distribution and connectivity in the black sea Karadeniz'deki hamsi dağılımı ve bölgeler arası bağlantısı üzerine hidrodinamik proseslerin etkisinin modellenmesi
Fach Salihoğlu, Bettina Andrea (2014-01-01)
Dispersal mechanisms of Black Sea anchovy larvae (Engraulis encrasicolus ponticus) across the Black Sea were studied with an individual based anchovy larvae model embedded in a Lagrangian model using surface currents calculated from daily dynamic height topography maps of altimeter data during a period of three years (2001-2003). Particles representing anchovy eggs were released at different sites during June to August and their movement was tracked over time. Drifters were advected for 36 days, representin...
