Batı Ege’de yeni bir çift kabuklu türü; Asya kum midyesi Corbicula fluminea (Müller, 1774)
A new bivalvia species in the West Aegean; Asian clam Corbicula fluminea (Müller, 1774)

Serpil Serdar [1]


Asya kum midyesi, Corbicula fluminea Uzak Doğu kökenli bir tür olup, 1930’lu yıllardan itibaren Amerika ve Avrupa’da da görülmeye başlanmıştır. Birçok ülkede istilacı tür olarak nitelendirilen bu canlı özellikle Çin, Japonya ve Kore gibi Uzak Doğu ülkelerinde sevilerek tüketilmektedir. Ülkemizde Seyhan, Ceyhan, Asi, Dicle Nehri ve civarında canlı olarak, ayrıca Kahramanmaraş’ta kurutulmuş olan Gavur Gölü’nde de ölü kabukları tespit edilmiş olmasına rağmen, Batı bölgelerimizdeki akarsu ve göllerde henüz bu türe ait bir bildirim yapılmamıştır. Bu çalışma ile Corbicula fluminea’nın canlı bireyleri ilk defa Aydın Çine Çayı’nda tespit edilmiş ve bu türe ait bazı biyometrik parametreler saptanmıştır. Elde edilen bireylerin boyları 16.11 mm ile 26.16 mm arasında ölçülürken, ağırlıkları ise 2.05 g ile 8.7 g arasında bulunmuştur. Bu türün boy-ağırlık ilişkisi (W = 0,0013L2,6934 r = 0.99) ise negatif allometrik olarak tespit edilmiştir.

The Asian clam Corbicula fluminea is a bivalve originated from the Far East and also this species was introduced to America and Europe in 1930’s. It is declared as an invasive species in many countries, however, it is fondly consumed in the China, Japan and Korea. In Turkey, although it is found Seyhan, Ceyhan, Asi and Tigris rivers and also its shells in dried Gavur Lake, there is no report for this species in the rivers and lakes of the West Regions. In this study, it is firstly recorded in the Çine Stream, Aydın, and also some biometric parameters have been investigated. As a result of this study shell lengths were measured between 16.11 mm and 26.16 mm and also weight were distributed between 2.05 and 8.7 gr, respectively. The relationship between shell length – weight of this species (W = 0,0013L2,6934 r = 0.99) was determined as negative allometric.
