Eight elasmobranch species were reported for the Lagoon of Bizerte, north-eastern Tunisia, central Mediterranean. These species were: Torpedo marmorata, Torpedo torpedo, Dasyatis chrysonota, Dasyatis pastinaca, Dasyatis tortonesei, Gymnura altavela, Myliobatis aquila and Pteromylaeus bovinus. General and local distribution of these eight species are discussed and commented while morphological and biological data are provided. Of the eight species reported, only one could represent a locally… Expand
Additional and unusual captures of elasmobranch species from the northern coast of Tunisia (central Mediterranean)
The present paper reports occurrences of six elasmobranch species previously considered as rare and/or unknown in northern Tunisian waters. Captures of sharpnose seven-gill shark, Heptranchias perloExpand
Maturity, reproductive cycle and fecundity of common torpedo, Torpedo torpedo (Chondrichthyes, Torpedinidae) from the Lagoon of Bizerte (Northeastern Tunisia, central Mediterranean)
TLDR
Investigations conducted in this latter area showed that males and females sexually matured between 234–285 mm and 245–280 mm total length (TL), respectively, and suggested that T. torpedo could be considered as a pure lecithotrophic species. Expand
Distribution of blackchin guitarfish Rhinobatos cemiculus E. Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1817 (Elasmobranchii: Rhinobatidae) with first records from İzmir Bay (Turkey, northeastern Aegean Sea)
Blackchin guitarfish, Rhinobatos cemiculus, is rather abundantly captured in the eastern tropical Atlantic, especially off Senegal and Mauritania. In the Mediterranean western basin, R. cemiculus isExpand
ADDITIONAL RECORDS OF A RARE ELASMOBRANCH SPECIES, SHARPNOSE SEVEN-GILL SHARK HEPTRANCHIAS PERLO (HEXANCHIDAE) OFF THE NORTHERN TUNISIAN COAST (CENTRAL MEDITERRANEAN)
TLDR
Four sharpnose seven-gill sharks Heptranchias perlo were captured off the northern Tunisian coast between 2007 and 2014, and the occurrence of a sustainable population in waters surrounding the Eskerkis Bank remains a suitable hypothesis which cannot be ruled out. Expand
Spatio-temporal patterns of abundance, biomass and length-weight relationships of Dasyatis species (Pisces: Dasyatidae) in the Gulf of Antalya, Turkey
The present paper reports the abundance and biomass of Dasyatis centroura (Mitchill, 1815), D. marmorata (Steindachner, 1892), D. pastinaca (Linnaeus, 1758), and D. tortonesei Capape, 1975 at variousExpand
Species diversity, taxonomy and distribution of Chondrichthyes in the Mediterranean and Black Sea
Abstract Species diversity assessments are an important step to evaluate the conservation status of a community, both in marine and terrestrial ecosystems. These assessments are pivotal if related toExpand
CONFIRMED OCCURRENCE OF CUCKOO WRASSE LABRUS MIXTUS (OSTEICHTHYES: LABRIDAE) IN TUNISIAN WATERS (CENTRAL MEDITERRANEAN)
TLDR
The capture of two specimens of cuckoo wrasse Labrus mixtus in northern Tunisian waters confirm the occurrence of the species in the area although locally it is considered to be very rare. Expand
Age and Growth Characteristics of Marbled Electric Ray Torpedo marmorata (Risso, 1810) Inhabiting Iskenderun Bay, North-eastern Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
The age and growth characteristic of the marbled electric ray (Torpedo marmorata) was determined inhabiting in Iskenderun Bay is located in north-eastern Mediterranean Sea and it was found that age band growth was annual. Expand
A CASE OF HERMAPHRODITISM IN TORTONESE'S STINGRAY, DASYATIS TORTONESEI (ELASMOBRANCHII: RAJIFORMES: DASYATIDAE) FROM THE LAGOON OF BIZERTE, TUNISIA
TLDR
13 cases of normal (4) and abnormal (9) hermaphroditism, including the Tunisian D. tortonesei, have been found in batoid species, to date, confirming that the phenomenon is very rare among these chondrichthyan fishes. Expand
Westernmost occurrence of the dusky spinefoot Siganus luridus (Osteichthyes, Siganidae) along North African coasts
TLDR
A specimen of dusky spinefoot Siganus luridus was recorded in the peri-Mediterranean Lagoon of Bizerte located in northern Tunisia, forming the northernmost extension range of the species in the Tunisian waters, and the second record of a teleost Lessepsian species, known to date in a restricted brackish area.

New species of the Monocotylidae (Monogenea) from the stingray Dasyatis tortonesi Capapé (Euselachii, Dasyatidae) off the Tunisian coast, with comments on host-specificity and the specific identities of Mediterranean stingrays
TLDR
The results suggest that the monogenean parasite fauna could be used as a diagnostic tool for species identification: these parasites may, therefore, represent good biological indicators. Expand

Review of the genus Progrillotia Dollfus, 1946 (Cestoda: Trypanorhyncha), with a redescription of Progrillotia pastinacae Dollfus, 1946 and description of Progrillotia dasyatidis sp. n.
TLDR
The genus Progrillotia is redescribed from the spiral valve of Dasyatis pastinaca (Linnaeus) (Dasyatididae) and a cladistic analysis suggests that the genus is closely allied with the Eutetrarhynchidae. Expand

TLDR
A monogenean found on the gills of seven host specimens is described as a new species and a new genus, Heliocotyle, is proposed to accomodate it. Expand
A taxonomic re-evaluation of the blue stingray from southern Africa (Myliobatiformes: Dasyatidae)
TLDR
The southern African blue stingray is a separate species from D. pastinaca and differs in coloration, disc length and vertebral and radial counts, but is considered conspecific with D. marmorata but differs slightly in snout angle and snout-to-vent length. Expand
Reproductive biology of the common torpedo, Torpedo torpedo (Linnaeus, 1758) (Pisces, Torpedinidae) from the coast of Senegal (Eastern Tropical Atlantic)
TLDR
The cornrnon torpedos from the coast of Senegal are larger and the eggs are heavier than Mediterranean specirnens, and male ernbryos and fully developed fetuses are more nurnerous than fernales. Expand
Infestation of the clam Venus verrucosa by Sipunculoidea and the lithophagus bivalve, Gastrochaena dubia
TLDR
Of specimens collected in February-March, 4% were infested with the lithophagous bivalve, Gastrochaena dubia, that lived within a cavity in the V. verrucosa valves, indicating parasitism that can cause progressive perforation of the valve and lead to the death of the host. Expand

TLDR
Growth and feeding of stingray (Dasyatis pastinaca) were studied using 346 specimens from the Cilician Basin coastal area (northeastern Mediterranean) using the von Bertalanffy length and weight growth parameters. Expand
