Abstract

The length-weight relationship of Paraphanius similis in the Mamasın (Aksaray) and Seyhan (Adana) reservoirs were studied on the basis of n=193 fish specimens (nfemales=85; nmales=108). Fish samples were collected using seine net net in 2016 year. The length-weight relationship was found as W=0.011 L3.589 (r=0.982) for females and W= 0.015 L3.406 (r=0.939) for males in Mamasın Reservoir; it was found as W=0.017 L3.083 (r=0.980) for females and W=0.008 L3.725 (r=0.974) for males in Seyhan Reserovir. The present study considers the first record and comprehensive information on the length-weight relationship of P. similis in the Mamasın Reservoir. The results of this study might support to the conservation of this species and contribute the knowledge on its ecology and biology.

Mamasın ve Seyhan Barajlarında Dağılım Gösteren Paraphanius similis’in Boy-Ağırlık İlişkisi (Türkiye)

Abstract

Mamasın (Aksaray) ve Seyhan (Adana) barajlarındaki Paraphanius similis türünün boy-ağırlık ilişkisi n=193 (ndişi=85; nerkek=108) balık ölçümü yapılarak incelenmiştir. Balık örnekleri 2016 yılında ığrıp kullanılarak toplanmıştır. Boy-ağırlık ilişkisi Mamasın Barajı’ndaki dişi bireyler için W=0.011 L3.589 (r=0.982) olarak, erkek bireyler için W=0.015 L3.406 (r=0.939) olarak; Seyhan Barajı’ndaki dişi bireyler için W=0.017 L3.083 (r=0.980) olarak; erkek bireyler için W=0.008L3.725 (r=0.974) olarak bulunmuştur. Bu çalışma, P. similis'in Mamasın Barajı'nda kaydı verilen ve türün oradaki boy-ağırlık ilişkisi hakkında bilgi içeren ilk çalışmadır. Çalışmanın sonuçlarının türün ekolojisi ve biyolojisi hakkında bilgi sahibi olunmasına katkıda bulunması ve türün azalmakta olan popülasyonunun korunmasını desteklemesi beklenmektedir.
