  • Container Handling Forecasting With Classical Time Series Analysis

    • Authors: Banu AKKAN; Vahit ÇALIŞIR
      Abstract: The increase in the trade volume in the global competitive environment constitutes the essential element of the economic inputs of the countries. Even though there are many ways to stand out from competitors in national or international trade; the main advantage is to discover the logistics service and the quality provided. Container transport is the most effective type of maritime transport, especially between the fast-growing and the load-carrying species in recent years. This study is intended to forecast the average amount of container handling in all ports in Turkey. The foresight of container handling volumes will ensure that the planning of container flow is carried out, helping to improve the quality of service of port businesses and helping our country gain an advantage over global competition. In this study, data on the monthly total container handling amount for the period of January 2004-December 2021 at Turkish ports were used from the relevant Ministry's website. First of all, the time series we have was examined, and time series analysis was carried out with the Seasonal Naive, Holt-Winters Additive, Holt-Winters Multiplicative, ETS and SARIMA methods in accordance with the structure of the time series. Moreover, in the analysis of this time series, the model with the best test set result was determined according to the root mean squared error and mean absolute percent error criteria. Conclusion, the most suitable method is SARIMA, among the methods tested in this study. In addition, the average container handling prediction values of all ports in Turkey for the year 2022 were determined with 95% lower and upper confidence limits.

  • Nutritional value of fish soup from cultured rainbow trout (Oncorhyncus
           mykiss, Walbaum, 1792)

    • Authors: Bekir TUFAN; Matevz POMPE, Marjan VEBER, Drago KOCAR, Sevim KÖSE
      Abstract: This study represents new information on the nutritional value of soup prepared from cultured Rainbow trout (Oncorhyncus mykiss). The proximate contents of soup were represented by 87.56% moisture, 7.22% protein, 1.59% crude fat, 0.07% carbohydrate, 1.17% dietary fibre and 2.44% ash. The energy value was calculated as 48.0 kcal/100g. Amino acid values were in the range of 183.5-1128.5mg/100g while mineral contents were varied as 0.6µg/g-19.5mg/g. The value of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) was higher than saturated fatty acids (SFA). Total PUFA and eicosapentaenoic acid + docosahexaenoic acid (EPA+DHA) were observed as 37.2 and 7.2%, respectively. These values corresponded to the values of 673.3 and 123.2 mg/100g of the edible portion of the soup within the same respect. The results of this study demonstrated that a portion of trout soup would almost cover daily recommended n-3 PUFA intake, however, higher amounts are required for the necessary levels of EPA+DHA. The vitamin B12 content was well above the recommended levels. The values of α and β tocopherols were observed as 272.0 and 1131.0 µg/100g (wwb), respectively. This study indicates that trout soup has a good nutritional value for human consumption for a healthy diet.

  • Self-Aeration Process in Mountain Stream Morphologies: Harmankaya Stream,
           Field Study

    • Authors: Serhat KÜÇÜKALİ
      Abstract: In this paper, a forested-mountain stream (Harmankaya) with a catchment area about 12 km2 located in Zonguldak (41ºN-31ºE) on the NW of Turkey has been studied associated with its plunge pools. In the stream, 22 plunge pools were detected and plunge pools drop heights had a variation of 0.7-20 m, whereas average pool depths had a range of 0.53-1.59 m. In a selected pool, the variation of dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration and temperature (Tw) through the pool depth have been investigated at different seasons. The data indicated the seasonal dependence of dissolved oxygen concentration in the plunge pool related to the water temperature. In all seasons DO levels had a downward trend from pool surface to the pool bottom. Riparian vegetation significance has been revealed in terms of regulating the temperature and dissolved oxygen levels of a pool, especially during the summer.

  • Antibacterial Activity and In vitro Probiotic Properties of Lactococcus
           lactis Isolated from Sea Bass (Dicentrarchus labrax)

    • Authors: Ecren UZUN YAYLACI
      Abstract: This study aimed to screen the antibacterial effect of Lactococcus lactis against selected pathogens and to characterize its probiotic properties in vitro. The whole-cell product and cell-free supernatant of L. lactis were tested and the antibacterial effect of the whole-cell compound was found to be greater than that of the cell-free supernatant. L. lactis exhibited the greatest inhibitory effect against A. veronii from which it was isolated from the same environment. L. lactis showed observable growth at 4-37 °C, 1-4% NaCl, 0.3% ox gall and pH 2-3. The cells had 89.3 % hydrophobicity. Of the 19 enzymes tested in the API-ZYM system, only 7 were evident for the strain. L. lactis was resistant to streptomycin and sulfadiazine but was susceptible to 7 other antibiotics commonly used in aquaculture. It was γ-hemolytic. The results demonstrated that L. lactis exhibited probiotic properties such as being able to survive in a wide temperature and salinity range, growing in acidic and bile salt environments, and producing enzymes that can support digestion. According to these findings, L. lactis may have the potential to be used as a probiotic supplement in aquaculture.

  • Ecological Carrying Capacity: Carrying Capacity Estimation for
           Kılıçkaya Dam Lake Using Phosphorus Based Loading Model

    • Authors: Ekrem BUHAN; Melek YÜZER
      Abstract: Ecological carrying capacity defines the degree of maximum utilization of the environment without damaging ecosystems. Like every economic activity, aquaculture has significant effects on aquatic ecosystems. Especially, floating net cage fish farms may cause eutrophication by releasing nutrients into the environment due to their settlement location. For this reason, the carrying capacity of the environment should be calculated before the establishment of fish farms. In this study, the carrying capacity of the Kılıçkaya Dam Lake located in the Black Sea Region of Turkey was estimated using the Dillon-Rigler phosphorus loading model. Farm and lake limnological data in calculations (average depth 16 m, surface area 64.4 km2, acceptable phosphorus load 30 mg/m3, average phosphorus concentration 24 mg/m3, FCR between 1.0-1.5-2.0) used. The model estimated the annual amount of trout that can be produced in the lake as between 1,697 tons and 25,162 tons. Considering the low depth of the lake, the eutrophic structure of the lower basin, and the global climate change, it has been concluded that an average of 2,500 tons/year trout can be produced without damaging the environment. In addition, it is suggested to calculate the ecological carrying capacity in all dam lakes of Turkey before the fish farm is established.

  • Unusual Winter Activity of Some Amphibian and Reptile Species Living in
           Bozcaada (Çanakkale, Turkey)

    • Authors: Ceren Nur ÖZGÜL; Didem KURTUL, Çiğdem GÜL, Murat TOSUNOĞLU
      Abstract: Amphibians and reptiles spend their winter months in the hibernation period under the ground in response to adverse weather conditions. It was established that some species of amphibians and reptiles are active before the periods when hibernation is supposed to end. One of the reasons for the occurrence of unusual winter activity in amphibian and reptile species may be that these species are very sensitive to changing temperature conditions. The effects of global warming on amphibians and reptiles are clearly visible, and some members of these groups may be active even in winter because of these effects. In this study, data on the unusual winter activity of Lissotriton schmidtleri, Mauremys rivulata, Testudo graeca, Hemidactylus turcicus, Mediodactylus kotschyi, Ophisops elegans and Ablepharus kitaibelii species living in Bozcaada, Çanakkale Province, were reported.

  • The effects of Dietary GroBiotic®-A on growth performance and survival
           rate of Penaeus semisulcatus (de Haan, 1844) juveniles

    • Authors: Metin YAZICI; Mevlüt AKTAŞ, Yavuz MAZLUM, Berna Funda ÖZBEK
      Abstract: In this study, the effects of GroBiotic®-A on growth performance, survival rate, and feed conversion ratios of green tiger shrimp were investigated. The commercial GroBiotic®-A was added to the commercial sea bass feed diet at 4 different levels (0, 0.5, 1, and 2%). Penaeus semisulcatus juvenile with an average weight of 1.65±0.08 g was stocked randomly in 0.785 m2 cylindrical tanks and grown for 45 days. The experiment consisted of four treatment groups, each with three replications. Although the survival rate and weight gain were found highest in the group with 2% GroBiotic®-A supplementation, no statistically significant difference was found (P>0.05) among the treatment groups. The feed conversion rate was best observed in the control and 2% GroBiotic®-A supplemented groups, but it was found to be statistically insignificant (P>0.05). According to the results of the current study, when the growth, survival rate and feed conversion ratios are taken into account, it is thought that adding 2% GroBiotic®-A to shrimp feeds will be beneficial.

           Fishery Sector; A Case of Fishing Ports in Hatay Province

    • Authors: Özkan AKAR; Aydın DEMİRCİ, Emrah ŞİMŞEK, Yavuz MAZLUM, Sevil DEMİRCİ
      Abstract: In this study, a comparative economic analysis was made on how financial performance can be measured and analyzed in four fishing port (Çevlik, Konacık, İskenderun and Dörtyol) in Hatay, Turkey. In order to measure the financial performance, the data were obtained from the database of the Provincial Directorate of Agriculture and Forestry and the Property Directorate, through one-to-one interviews with the operators of the fishing ports in 2017. At the end of the study, it has been determined that there are differences between the legal regulations and regulations related to the practical activities of the fishing port enterprises. In these differences, it can be clearly said that the operation of the fishing ports by the fishery cooperatives in the region does not provide the expected benefit from the fishing ports. The results showed that Dörtyol fishing port was to be the best fishing port in terms of financial performance, location and diversity of boats using the port.

           Growth of Daphne Odora ‘Aureomarginata’

    • Authors: Turan YÜKSEK; Bahriye ÇEMBERCİ
      Abstract: : Conversion of municipal waste sludge into products with economic value by using recycling methods is extremely important for sustainable environmental management. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of vermicompost obtained from red California earthworm fed with municipal sludge and clay mixture on the growth of Daphne odora plant. In order to produce vermicompost, 2 different (wastewater sludge (100%) and wastewater sludge (50%) + clay soil (50%)) feding materials were used. The research was carried out in the plastic box with a width of 40 cm x 40 cm length x 20 cm in accordance with the randomized plot design in three repetitions. As a result of the research, the number of worms in the wastewater sludge (100%) feding material decreased during the first 5 weeks and then increased. The worm weight in the wastewater sludge decreased by 6.20% during the first 2 weeks, increased from the second week to the 6th week, and then decreased again. The number of worms in the medium consisting of a mixture of wastewater sludge (50%) + clayey soil (50%) increased in the first week, then decreased linearly. As a result of the conversion of the waste sludge into solid vermicompost by vermicomposting technique, there was an increase of 9-25% in all 11 parameters measured in the waste sludge. Among the parameters, the highest increase occurred in the amount of IC, while the lowest increase occurred in the Na value. It was determined that the difference between Ca, Zn, TOC and IC values was statistically significant. The highest growth in height, the highest number of leaves, the highest root collar diameter, the highest root length, the highest root weight, the highest leaf weight, the highest stem weight, the highest flower weight, the highest above-ground biomass ratio was obtained in plants where vermicompost obtained from wastewater sludge (%) 50) + clay soil (50 %) growing medium.
