This preliminary study aimed to contribute to the knowledge on distribution, diversity, abundance and biomass of demersal fishes in the south-western Black Sea shelf. Samples were collected with bottom trawl net in November 2006 and October 2007. A total of eight hauls were conducted by R/V Yunus-S in the south-western Black Sea at the depths of 22 and 73 m. A total of 14,228 individuals (297.2 kg) belonging to 28 species were. Merlangius merlangus and Mullus barbatus were the main species in the whole catch, in terms of abundance and biomass.

    Square mesh panels are often inserted in the codend or extension of a fishing net to allow under-sized fish an extra opportunity to escape. The effectiveness of the panel can be quantified by placing a small-mesh cover over the panel to catch all the fish that escape through it. This paper...

    A microscopic bubble generating system (MBGS) has been developed to control dissolved oxygen (DO) levels suitable for fish farming. The MBGS has been tested to confirm its capability in net pens. Water conditions in a fish farm were monitored every two hours from June to October 2004 by setting...

    The experiment evaluated the stocking density of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) fingerling in netcages for 43 days. Fifteen 180L netcages were used as experiment units, in a pond with 80% water renovation. The tested stocking densities were 700 fingerlings/m3; 1,000 fingerlings/m3 and...

    Because of scale effects and inappropriate hydrodynamic models, the nonlinear hydroelastic response of net cages used for fish-farming cannot be analyzed precisely with traditional model testing or combinations of finite element methods (FEMs) and load models. In this study, an innovative hybrid...

    We performed a field experiment in 15 fish ponds manipulating the size and biomass of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus, to test the hypothesis that the effects of planktivorous fish on plankton dynamics and community structure depend on the planktivore type and fish-stocking biomass....
