Ichthyofauna of Sultan Marshes (Turkey) and Possible Effects of Fish Invasion from Seyhan Basin on Diversity and Conservation

Year 2020, Volume 4, Issue 2, 115 - 120, 31.12.2020

Abstract

Ichthyofauna of the Sultan Marshes and its drainage based on an extensive survey are presented. In addition, the suggestion of the IUCN criteria of the recently described fish species and the ecological quality of the marshes based on the EurAsian Fish Index (EAFI) were estimated. Furthermore, Capoeta damascina, Garra turcica, Squalius seyhanensis, and Oxynoemacheilus seyhanensis are reported for the first time in the Sultan Marshes, entered from the Seyhan basin via the Zamanti Tunnel. Based on the results, a total of 16 species belonging to 6 families have been identified with 9 translocated ones (58.3%). The estimated EAFI value for different parts of the marshes differs from 4 (Bad) to 30 (High) with a mean of 21.0 (Good) that shows the negative effect of both anthropogenic deterioration and occurrence of translocated species.

Sultan Sazlığı Balık Faunası ve Seyhan Havzasından Giriş Yapan Balık Türlerinin Çeşitlilik ve Korunma Üzerine Olası Etkileri

Year 2020, Volume 4, Issue 2, 115 - 120, 31.12.2020
https://doi.org/10.31594/commagene.817306

Abstract

Sultan Sazlığı havzasının balık faunası kapsamlı olarak ele alınmıştır. Ayrıca son yıllarda tanımlanmış olan balık türleri için IUCN kriteri önerisi yapılarak Avrasya Balık İndeksine (EAFI) dayalı olarak sulak alanın ekolojik kalite durumu belirlenmiştir. Ayrıca bu çalışmada Zamantı Tüneli ile Seyhan Havzasından Sultan Sazlığı Kapalı Havzasına giriş yapmış olan Capoeta damascina, Garra turcica, Squalius seyhanensis ve Oxynoemacheilus seyhanensis türleri ilk kez bildirilmektedir. Eldeki bulgular doğrultusunda havzada altı familyaya mensup toplam 16 tür dağılım göstermekte olup bunlardan dokuz tanesi havza için egzotik tür (% 58,3) niteliğindedir. Sazlığın farklı kısımları için EAFI değeri 4 (Kötü) ile 30 (Yüksek) arasında değiştiği belirlenmiş olup, ortalama ekolojik durum değeri ise 21,0 (İyi) olarak belirlenmiş olup, bu değerin düşük olduğu alanlarda antropojenik etkinin yüksek olduğu ve egzotik türlerin bulunduğu görülmüştür.
