  Juvenile angelfish (Pterophyllum scalare) was exposed to six different concentrations of Naphthalene, Anthracene, Phenanthrene and Pyrene for a period of 132 h. Mortalities were recorded each 12 h and an average of total mortalities for three replicates of each PAHs was designated as the endpoint of toxicity for angelfishes. This parameter correlated with geometric descriptors (length, width, thickness, length/breadth ratio, molecular volume and molecular surface area), physiochemical descriptors (molar volume, molecular weight, octanol-water partition coefficient and boiling point) and an electronic descriptor (resonance energy). The regression equations showed the significant correlation for three dimensional geometric descriptors, physiochemical descriptors and resonance energy versus mortality. These results indicate that at the range of log Kow<=5.2, raising three dimensional geometric descriptors values will result in more mortality.

  Coral reefs are specialized communities that develop clear, well-lit tropical and subtropical water; they provide shelter and canopy for great variety of organisms, living in mean temperature of 20°C. Coral Bleaching and mortality have been associated with elevated seawater temperature. The aim of the study was to investigate coral bleaching and evaluate health condition of the corals. Distribution of coral reefs around Kish Island was determined by the Timed Swim (TS) technique. This survey carried out in 2 times (May and October, 2009) in 2 depths of 3-5 m and 6-10 m. Two Divers swam in constant speed for a set amount of time in three dive sites. The timed swim survey around the Kish Island showed that the most healthy live hard coral assemblages were found in the site called Persian Gulf seaport, whereas the greatest percentage of bleached corals were located in Jurassic Park station, located at the southeast of the Island. Branching corals (Acropora sp.) were bleached among all 3 stations and no sign of recovery could be detected. In Big coral site suitable substrate for accumulation of living organisms including Echinometra mathaie (sea urchin) existed due to presence of great amount of algae on dead corals and rocks. Based on the observation, it seems that the cause of reef destruction in Kish Island fall in to two categories, natural and human impacts.
