Abstract:
This study was undertaken due to identification, abundance and diversity, temporal and spatial fluctuation of coralline fish larvae in Khark and Kharko Islands water. Khark and Kharko Islands are the last Northern point for fringing coral reefs in Iranian side of the Persian Gulf. These Coralline habitats are the Protected Area and Wildlife Refugees with the total area of 2400 ha which located in the territory of Bushehr Province. This research carried out during 2006-2007 with monthly sampling from 9 stations, which selected around Islands inshore waters with maximum depth of 20 m. Sampling was conducted using by Bongo-Net plankton sampler with 500 μ of mesh size. Totally 494 specimens from: 22 coralline fish larva families were identified in studied area, such as pelagic and demersal fishes. The results was shown that coral reef diversity in coral reefs (Khark and Kharko Islands) is more than other habitats such as estuary and river mouth, creeks, mangrove forest sites and off shore water of the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea Iranian side. The pick of fish larvae abundance family were estimated in spring.
