Review of the Perches of Iran (Family Percidae)

Brian W. Coad

Abstract

The systematics, morphology, distribution, biology, economic importance and conservation of the perches of Iran are described, the species are illustrated, and a bibliography on these fishes in Iran is provided. There are three species, Perca fluviatilis, Sander lucioperca and S. marinus, found naturally in the Caspian Sea basin, with S. lucioperca translocated.

Keywords

Iran, Biology, Morphology, Sander, Perca.
