Abstract



Bu çalışma, bazı ek biyolojik bilgilerle birlikte Türkiye Denizleri için Pterois miles in maksimum boy kaydını sunmaktadır. Örnek 15 Temmuz 2021'de Bodrum (Güney Ege Denizi) Çökertme Koyu açıklarında 10 m derinlikte zıpkınla yakalanmıştır. Yakalanan kırmızı aslan balığının toplam boyu 34.0 cm ve toplam ağırlığı 707.55 olarak tespit edilmiştir. Örneğin 13.6 g gonad ağırlığında ve 6 yaşında bir erkek birey olduğu belirlenmiştir. Mide içeriğinde bir av balığı olan Chromis chromis tanımlanabilir bir durumda tespit edilmiştir. Söz konusu bireyin toplam boy ve ağırlığı, bugüne kadar bildirilen çalışmalar arasında Türkiye Denizleri için en büyük olanıdır.

Abstract



Present work reports the maximum size record of Pterois miles for Turkish Seas with some additional biological information. The greatest individual of P. miles was caught off Çökertme Bight, Bodrum (Southern Aegean Sea) at 10 m depth with a spear gun on 15 July 2021. Captured individual of devil firefish was 34.0 cm in total length and 707.55 g in total weight. Specimen was male with a gonad weight of 13.6 g and it was determined to be 6 years old. A prey fish Chromis chromis were detected in the stomach in definable visible condition. Total length and weight of the mentioned individual are the greatest for the Turkish Seas among the reported studies up to date.
