Effects of atrazine herbicide on physiological, biochemical and histological biomarkers of developmental stages of larvae and fry in Caspian kutum, Rutilus frisii kutum - Khoshnood, Zahra
To investigation of the toxic effects of atrazine on newly hatched larvae and releasing age fry of the Caspian Kutum, Rutilus frisii kutum, the 96h LC50 was determined as 18.53 ppm and 24.95 ppm, respectively. Newly hatched larvae were exposed to three sublethal concentrations of atrazine (1/2LC50, 1/4LC50 and 1/8LC50) for 7 days. Different histopathological alterations were observed in fins and integument, gills, Kidney, digestive system, liver and the brain of the exposed larvae. Fry’s were exposed to one sublethal concentration of atrazine (1/2LC50) for four days, and like the larvae’s, many histopathological alterations were observed in fins and integument,...
Survey of veterinery [sic] drug residues, environmental contaminants and mycotoxins of cultured shirmp [sic] in Iran - Motalebi Moghanjoughi, Abbasali
Economical achievement of optimal growth in developing countries may lead to sustainable poverty reduction. Agricultural activities play an important role in economy and human being welfare, which leads to establishment of food security and quality.
Aquaculture products in developing countries share 51.4 percent of total agricultural production.7—percent in developed countries. Therefore undoutedly food production by means of quality and quantity has to be increased .The history of shirmp production goes back to 500 years ago. Today 50 countries of the world produce shirmp .In Islamic Republic of Iran shrimp production started since 1992 in the coastal region of Persian Gulf....
Studies on distribution, diversity and production of macrobenthic fauna in the Chahbahar Bay - Nikouyan, Alireza
The population density, distribution, diversity and secondry production of macrobenthic fauna of the inner Chahbahar Bay were studied through bi-monthly sampling from April 1995 to March 1996. Samples were collected from water near the bottom and sediment at 14 stations inside the Bay and one reference station located outside at the entrance to the Bay. The environmental parameters Such as temperature, water depth, salinity, pH and dissolved oxygen as well as percentage silt-clay and total organic matter of the sediment were measured. The faunal population density and their distribution is discussed in relation to the environmental changes. results obtained indicated...
Reproductive physiology of ribbon fish (Trichiurus lepturus) - Hosseinzadeh SahafiI, H.
The ribbon fishes ‘of the family Trichiuridac are represented as one of the most important food resources in Indian ocean. High density of the dominant species of ribbon fish (Trichiurus lepturus) in Oman sea and the 'Tillable catch in last yeas (more than 7000 tones per year) makes a trust area for studing their population biolog and stock assessment. As our knowledge on reproductive biology of this species has an important role on their fisheries management, as well as conservation of this stock from decline or over fishing, this research was held to determine some aspects of reproductive physiology of...
Study on the reproductive biology of Pinctada fucata (Gould) (Mollusca: Pteriidae) - Behzadi, Safieh
Annual cycle of gonad development and spawning in pearl oyster, Pinctada ficata (Gould) in Nakhiloo, Northeast Persian Gulf, was investigated over two years from August 1994 to June 1996. Gonadal condition was assessed by staging criteria to describe gametogenic development from histological preparations of randomly collected individuals of all sizes. A bimodal gametogenic pattern with summer and autumn spawning periods was evident throughout the study. Gametogensis commenced in November-December which proceeded by major gonadal maturation during February-April. Summer spawning was observed from April to July with major spawning at the latter end. During spawning peak in July, low level of...
Identification and distribution of cartilaginous fishes of the Persian Gulf (Bushehr Province waters) - Vosoughi, Abdolrahim
Class Condrichthyes consist of two sub-classes: Holocehali and. Elasmobranchii, the second one are more divers and has more importance. Selachimorpha (sharkes) and Batidoidimorpha (rays and skates) are two super-order of Elasmobranchii, which they have crucial role in ecological balance in marine ecosystmes. Except few cases, most of sharks and rays (rays and skates) are not well identified, so a lot of works need to be done in this regards. The area of study is located between 49°, 35' and 52°, 33' E and between 27°, 21' and 30°, 02' N in depth of 7 to 78 in. Study were conducted...

Assessment of pelagic primary and secondary production in Sefidrud River estuary - Rahimi Bashar, Mohammadreza
Sefid-Rood River Estuary (SRE) is the most important riverine ecosystem in the
south Caspian Sea along the Iranian coast lines. The aim of this study was to
examine spatial and temporal variability in Phytoplankton and Zooplankton
abundance and diversity in SRE. Variability of Chlorophyll a and inorganic
nutrient concentration were determined during a year (November 2004–
October 2005) in five sampling stations. Primary and secondry production were
determined during a year. Total chlorophyll a concentration during the
investigation ranged between zero to 22.8 μgl-1 and the highest levels were
consistently recorded during summer and the lowest during winter with a
annual mean concentration 4.48 μgl-1. Nutrient concentration was seasonally
Comparative study of seasonal changes in some blood parameters and genetic polymorphisms of serum antibodies and antigens on red blood cells surface in immature Caspian salmon - Jamalzade, Hamidreza
Seasonal sampling from 40 immature Caspian salmon were performed in
summer, autumn, winter and spring. The maximum ranges of RBC counts,
Hct, Hb, WBC count and clotting times were observed in spring, summer,
spring, spring and winter, respectively. The minimum amounts of these
factors were counted in summer, winter, winter, winter and winter,
respectively. Blood Samples were taken from healthy smolt, immature and
adult Caspian salmon in spawning time. Hematological determinations and
biochemical serum analysis were performed in 101 fish in the three samples.
The ranges of hematological values for sample mean were counted. Red blood
cell counts were 866600 mm3 and 1259400 mm3 in smolt and adult
Chemical ecology fatty acids of mollusks dominant species in intertidal zone of Chabahar Bay - Sajadi, Nooshin
Chemical ecology is the science of study and analysis of natural chemical products in result of biochemical processes in organisms and their reactions to variations of ecological and environmental parameters.
In marine chemical ecology the existence of natural products in aquatic organisms and their ecological roles in marine animals and their reactions to environmental parameters variations will be studied.
Among them, fatty acids are the most various and abundant ones in natural products which had been extracted from many marine organisms such as mollusks and algae.
In this study selected animals were the dominant species of mollusks in intertidal zone of chabahar bay...

created by increasing of phytoplankton population, influenced by different factors
such as climate condition changes, utrification hydrological factors and can
leave sever and undesired ecological and economical effects behind itself in the
case of durability. Coast line of Hormozgan is about 900km from east to west,

Study biological characteristics related with development and reproduction in Barbus capito on the southern coast of the Caspian Sea, Gilan Province - Shajie, Hooman
In the present research, a total of 207 pieces of fish from 25 sampling stations in Gilan Province coasts in the years 2001-2002 were biologically studied in terms of their growth and development, reproduction and feeding. The average length and weight of the fishes are increased, as they get older. The highest index of length and weight growth is observed in the years 1 to 2. As the age increases, gradient of length and weight growth diagrams decrease. In studying the relation between length and weight, it was observed that proportionate to the total length, the weight is increased progressively....
