Ghotbeddin Negar, Ghotbeddin Zohre and Nazem Habib

Abstract:
Length-frequency and growth of one of the dominant species, Tellina foliacea (Linnaeus, 1758) (Bivalve, Tellinidae) in the Hendijan coast, Khuzestan province (Persian Gulf) were studied from summer 2005 to spring 2006. Sampling was done seasonally with vanveen grab from 5 stations. Stations were located 0.5 mile apart and samples were collected from approximately 8 m depth. The population structure presented a size range between 0.5 and 6.5 mm length, being mainly formed by individuals 3 to 4 mm, that were dominant in winter. Recruitment rate was low and the major contribution of recruits was found in spring. Growth parameters of the Von Bertalanffy growth function were estimated to be L = 7.70 mm, K = 1.200 y-1, t0 = 0.9 y.
