The sex steroid profile of Caspian brown trout was investigated after gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogue (GnRHa) injection throughout the spawning season, i.e. December and January. The values of testosterone (T), 11-Ketotestosterone (11-KT), progesterone (P), cortisol (C) and 17α, hydroxyprogesterone (OHP) were measured for GnRHa treated (the treatment group) and untreated groups (the control group) during the spawning season. In treated males, the values of 11-KT, OHP and C increased 14 days after GnRHa treatment and only showed a significant decrease at the end of the season. Also, the T and P levels showed increases 14 days after GnRHa treatment and then decreased continuously towards the end of the season. In untreated males, sex steroid peaks were observed 27 days after first stripping. In conclusion, our results showed that the GnRHa treatment of Caspian brown trout promotes the final maturation by clear effects on the sex steroid profile. © 2014 Taylor and Francis.

The rapid population growth and ongoing development activities has resulted in natural resources demolition. However, the dynamics of the natural resources in relation to different biophysical and socio-economic factors are still remains poorly understood. The present study investigates the basic natural resources i.e. forest, rangeland and surface water bodies' status using satellite data for the years 1990, 1998, and 2006, and their change detection in relation to biophysical and socio-economic factors. Monitoring land-use/cover change detection using remotely sensed data has been a well recognized technique. The analysis of change detection revealed eleven important land cover changes, which occurred during the past 16 years (1990-2006) in the region. The rate of land cover change was observed to vary across the sub periods and a general decline of forest cover and increase in rangelands and water bodies was observed. Logistic regression model was employed to analyze the relationship between changes and explanatory factors. The land cover change results and logistic models developed in this study are useful in supporting natural resources management efforts and provide useful information for managers/policy makers in formulation of sustainable management strategies for the region. © 2013 Indian Society of Remote Sensing.

Objective: To determine the effects of water hardness on the toxicities of cobalt (Co) and nickel (Ni) to a freshwater fish, Capoeta fusca. Methods: Toxicity was investigated by static bioassay. Fish were exposed to cobalt (as CoCl 2) and nickel (as NiCl 2) for 96 h in waters with two levels of hardness ("hard" and "very hard", nominally 130 mg/L and 350 mg/L as CaCO 3, respectively). Results: Water hardness had a significant effect on the acute toxicity of both elements. The 96 h LC 50 values for Co were 91.7 mg/L and 204.8 mg/L in hard and very hard waters, respectively, and for Ni the 96 h LC 50 values were 78.0 mg/L and 127.2 mg/L, respectively. Conclusion: The fish were more sensitive to Co and Ni toxicity in hard water than in very hard water; very hard water protects C. fusca against the toxicity of Co and Ni. © 2011 by China CDC.

The aim of the study is to evaluate which plant foods are suitable for high temperature food processes. Plant foods are the only sources of dietary fiber. Carbohydrates are the major nutrients of fruits and vegetables and human nutrition. Sugars are determined in the combined extracts using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with a universal evaporative light scattering detector. Results showed that that fructose, glucose, sucrose contents were high in Cordia myxa (9.38, 12.75, 29.09%) respectively and the starch content was high in Alocacia indica (60.41%). Alocacia has high calorie and nutritional value because it contains high carbohydrates contents (72.66%) and Cordia was the sweetest fruits because it contains the maximum amounts of sucrose, glucose and fructose. The TDF content w as low in Portulaca oleracia (dried) (8g %) and was high in Cordia myxa (27.7g %). It is observed that vegetables of Portulaca, Asparagus, Momordica and Eulophia can be recommended in plant-based diets in Iran and India. These vegetables are relatively good carbohydrates sources. © Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2009.

The quality and shelf life of whole and gutted Indo Pacific king mackerel stored in freezer were studied. The changes in the fish were investigated by sensory assessments, chemical analyses. The sensory scores of uneviscerated and gutted Indo Pacific king mackerel stored in -10 °C were 20 days. pH value of Indo Pacific king mackerel fillet was increased (P < 0.05) with storage time, indicating that alkaline compounds were accumulated through autolytic activities or microbial metabolism. Sensory properties of samples were evaluated according to hedonic scale. General appearance, odor, color and texture were used as criteria for acceptability. The shelf life of Indo Pacific king mackerel fillets stored at-10°C ranged 8 - 18 days considering fish freshness.

The proximate composition and mineral constituents of Asparagus officinalis stem and Momordica dioica R. fruit were evaluated in order to standard methods. The stem contained an ashes: 10.70%, crude protein: 32.69%, crude lipid: 3.44%, crude fiber: 18.50%, and carbohydrates: 34.67%. Stem also has highenergy value (384.27kcal/100 g) dry weight. The fruits contained an ashes: 9.1%, crude protein: 5.44%, crude lipid: 3.25%, crude fiber: 22.9%, and carbohydrates: 59.31%. Comparing proximate and minerals contents of the stem and the fruit, the results indicated that Asparagus officinalis stem could be a good supplement for some nutrients such as protein, potassium, and carbohydrates. The stem could be promoted as a carbohydrate supplement for cereal-based diets in poor rural communities, while Momordica dioica R. fruits could be a good supplement for some nutrients such as Fibre, Potassium, Zinc, lipid, Protein and Carbohydrates. A. officinalis is suitable for high-temperature food processes. © Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2010.

Fatty acids with several double bonds omega -3 and omega- 6 in fish oil decrease heart disease risk. In this research, Iodine, peroxide and acidic indexes of oils obtained from some fishes species of Persian Gulf of South Iran include: Katus wonus pelamis, Cyprinodon Aphanius dispar, Hilsa macrura ilisha, Chirocenterous dorab, Cybium scomberomorus guttatum and Pseudosciaena johninus aneus, were evaluated. Evaluation of For Peer Review quality of fishes oils, showed Katus wonus pelamis, Pseudosciaena johninus aneus and Cyprinodon aphanius dispar oils had high quality respectively. Comparison of fishes oils showed Cyprinodon aphanius dispar oil had highest yield (24%) and Katus wonus pelamis oil had lowest yield (3.95%). Comparison of peroxide indexes in Fishes oils, showed Pseudosciaena johninus aneus and Cybium scomberomorus guttatum oils had highest and lowest of peroxide value respectively. Tuna fish oil contains considerable contents of Free Fatty Acids (FFA) and omega--3 and omega--6 fatty acids, furthermore, Katus wonus pelamis and Hilsa Macrura ilisha oils have high and low quality respectively. Cyprinodon Aphanius dispar and Cybium Scomberomorus guttatum oils have highest and lowest of yield respectively. It is observed that Cyprinodon aphanius dispar, Pseudosciaena johninus aneu, Katus wonus pelamis and Chirocenterous dorab, were suitable commercially for extraction of oil in industrial scale. © Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2009.
