Life history traits of the narrow-barred Spanish mackerel (Scomberemorus commerson) across jurisdictions of the southeast Arabian Peninsula: Implications for regional management policies
Abstract The narrow-barred Spanish mackerel (Scomberomorus commerson) is a large neritic predatory fish targeted by several thousand artisanal boats across eight jurisdictions in the Arabian Gulf,Expand
Validation of annulus in otolith and estimation of growth rate for Japanese eel Anguilla japonica in tropical southern Taiwan
The annual deposition of presumed annuli in otoliths of Japanese eel was validated and the age and growth rate estimation for Japanese eels in the tropical southern Taiwan is deemed feasible. Expand
Effects of Shrimp Net and Cultured Eels on the Wild Population of Japanese eel Anguilla japonica in Kao-Ping River, Taiwan
It is suggested that the population of Japanese eel in the river was probably small and unstable as indicated by the change of sex ratio and length distribution and the small-sized eel was more vulnerable to the shrimp net. Expand
DNA barcoding of marine fishes from Saudi Arabian waters of the Gulf.
The DNA barcoding database developed during this study will help ichthyologists to identify and resolve the taxonomic ambiguities they may encounter with the fishes occurring in The Gulf and throughout the region. Expand
Patchwork of oil and gas facilities in Saudi waters of the Arabian Gulf has the potential to enhance local fisheries production
Because of the increasing oil industry development in the Arabian Gulf, hundreds of oil and gas facilities have been installed in both offshore and inshore areas during the last few decades. However,Expand
Nursery habitats and life history traits of the green tiger shrimp Penaeus semisulcatus (De Haan, 1844) in the Saudi waters of the Arabian Gulf
These life history traits correspond to a short-lived stock whose abundance is driven by recent recruitment pulses, and a 2-parameters version of the Gompertz model was the most supported by the data. Expand
Anthropogenic-induced acceleration of elemental burial rates in blue carbon repositories of the Arabian Gulf.
It is demonstrated that sediments in vegetated coastal habitats provide long-term archives of trace elements concentrations and burial rates reflecting human activities in the Arabian Gulf. Expand
Association to vegetated habitats and different vulnerability to habitat degradation for two fish species, Epinephelus areolatus (Serranidae) and Siganus canaliculatus (Siganidae), from the western
Different preferences in using vegetated habitats and degrees of vulnerability to habitat degradation for these two species could be further integrated to set priorities for management and conservation plans. Expand
Recovery of benthic communities from small-scale shrimp trawling: Evidence from using ecological indices over a short temporal scale
Abstract Mobile fishing gears are responsible of various direct effects on benthic communities. The most important (in volume and value) fishery in Saudi waters of the Arabian Gulf is the 6-monthExpand
