Abstract The life history pattern (age, growth and reproduction) of bitterling, Rhodeus amarus (Bloch, 1782), was studied in the Omerli Dam Lake a large drinking water system located in Istanbul (Turkey) between April 2003 to August 2004. Age determination based on opercula readings and validated by scale readings and length frequency analysis shows that population has a 5-year life cycle. The von Bertalanffy growth function was fitted to length-at-age data and displayed variation in growth… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Seasonal dynamics in population characteristics of European bitterling Rhodeus amarus in a small lowland river.
TLDR
Seasonal dynamics in somatic condition, relative lipid content and gonad mass, and their comparison with other R. amarus populations, suggest that the study population allocated a disproportionally high level of resources to reproduction. Expand
Length-weight and length-length relationships of the European bitterling (Rhodeus amarus (Bloch, 1782)) inhabiting inland waters of Samsun Province
TLDR
According to analyses bitterling has positive allometric growth for two localities and length-length relationships equations show that total, fork and standard length values are very strong between each other. Expand
Features of reproductive biology in females of bitterlings (Cyprinidae: Acheilognathinae) from the Amur River basin
TLDR
Data on morphological and functional characteristics of the ovipositor, conical organ, and ovaries in four species of bitterlings from the Amur River basin are obtained and reviewed for the first time. Expand
Structure of the ovipositor and ovary and the features of reproduction in Amur bitterling Rhodeus sericeus (Cyprinidae: Acheilognatinae)
TLDR
The observations of free embryos of Amur bitterling in the left internal hemibranches of bivalves Sinanodonta likharevi, Nodularia amurensis, N. schrencki, and N. middendorffi show that the symbiotic relationships can be characterized as obligate. Expand
Biological properties of European bitterling Rhodeus amarus (Bloch, 1782) in Dinsiz Stream, Turkey
TLDR
The aim of this article was to some morphometric characteristics of Rhodeus amarus from Dinsiz Stream Turkey, which include total length, fork length, standard length, and predorsal length. Expand
Histological structure of the female gonads and ovipositor of the European bitterling, Rhodeus amarus (Bloch, 1782) (Cyprinidae: Acheilognathinae)
TLDR
Mucous cells were detected in the medial and distal regions of the ovipositor, which may play a role in facilitating insertion of the oocytes into the exhalant siphon of a mussel during oviposition. Expand
Synthesis of thermal tolerances of the common freshwater fish species in large Western Europe rivers
TLDR
A synthesis, based on more than 300 references, is proposed, which details thermal tolerances for the entire life cycle: reproduction, embryonic, larval, juvenile and adult life stages, which is of great importance to an understanding of the trends observed in fish communities. Expand
BREEDING RESOURCE DISTRIBUTION AFFECTS SELECTION GRADIENTS ON MALE PHENOTYPIC TRAITS: EXPERIMENTAL STUDY ON LIFETIME REPRODUCTIVE SUCCESS IN THE BITTERLING FISH (RHODEUS AMARUS)
TLDR
Breeding resource distribution had a significant effect on selection on male phenotypic traits, and a stronger positive selection onmale body size was detected with a regular resource distribution. Expand
Effects of land-based sources on water quality in the Omerli reservoir (Istanbul, Turkey)
The Omerli reservoir is located on the northeastern side of the Istanbul City. It is one of the most important sources of drinking water with a surface area of 23.1 km2 and a volume of 220 × 106 m3Expand

Characteristics of the European Bitterling Rhodeus amarus (Cyprinidae) in the Rihios River, Greece
TLDR
The condition factor and the gonadosomatic index indicated that reproduction occurred around April-June, and the population of the European bitterling grew allometrically and had a five-year life cycle. Expand
The life history of the minnow Phoxinus phoxinus (L.) in a productive stream
TLDR
In the River Frome, Dorset, this small cyprinid spawned from mid-April to early August and consequently some 0 group minnows did not develop scales until the following spring, indicating the cost of an extended high level of reproductive effort. Expand
Patterns of Ontogenetic Changes in Relative Growth in the Precocial Cyprinid, Bitterling (Rhode Us Seri Ce Us)
TLDR
It is concluded that bitterling, although a species with a precocial form of development, still retains a larval period, however, its duration is short compared to other cyprinids. Expand
The reproductive ecology of the European bitterling (Rhodeus sericeus)
The European bitterlingRhodeussericeus Pallas is a freshwater fish belonging to the Acheilognathinae, a subfamily that has an unusual spawning symbiosis with freshwater mussels. Female bitterlingExpand
Geographical variation of some taxonomically important characters in fishes: the case of the bitterling Rhodeus sericeus
TLDR
None of the counts investigated, including a key character (number of pored scales in LL), can be used to distinguish amarus from sericeus, and the concept of subspecies and trinomial nomenclature is inefficient, superfluous and misleading, and should be excluded from taxonomy, nomenClature and ecology.

Age and growth of European bitterling [Rhodeus sericeus] in the Wieprz-Krzna Canal, Poland
TLDR
The age and growth of bitterling, a small Eurasian cyprinid, were studied in the Wieprz-Krzna Canal, a poorly structured irrigation canal located in eastern Poland and several normal components were clearly necessary to explain the length-frequency distribution. Expand
Development of European bitterling in the gills of freshwater mussels
The development of bitterling embryos within the unique environment of a freshwater mussel's gills requires a departure from typical cyprinid embryological development. Eggs are large (2·6×1·7 mm),Expand

The bitterling-mussel interaction as a test case for co-evolution
TLDR
The evidence for and against co-evolution is reviewed, incorporating new results from two sets of experiments designed to test for adaptive choices by bitterling according to the mussels' sex and reproductive state, as well as a preliminary study of potential benefits for mussels from exposure to bitterling.
