Abstract



In the scope of this study, three freshwater fish species were newly recorded for Turkey from a western drainage of Lake Urmia: Alburnoides petrubanarescui, Alburnus atropatenae and Oxynoemacheilus elsae. All of them were found in headwaters of Nazli-chay River in the basin of the hypersaline Lake Urmia. The Lake is fed by many small springs and thirteen permanent rivers. However, it is still seriously threatened and drying up rapidly. In the previous studies, the existence of a stream in the western part of the Urmia Lake within border of Turkey was not mentioned.

Abstract



Bu çalışma kapsamında, Urmia Gölü’nün batı drenajından Türkiye için üç yeni tatlı su balığı türü bildirilmişir: Alburnoides petrubanarescui, Alburnus atropatenae ve Oxynoemacheilus elsae. Bu türlerin hepsi yüksek tuzluluğa sahip Urmia Gölü havzasındaki Nazlı Çay'ın membalarında tespit edilmiştir. Bu göl, birçok küçük su kaynağı ve 13 devamlı nehir ile beslenmektedir. Ama yine de ciddi tehdit altındadır ve hızla kurumaktadır. Daha önceki çalışmalarda, Urmiye Gölü havzasının batı kesiminde Türkiye sınırları içerisinde ki akarsuların mevcudiyetinden bahsedilmemiştir.
