ABSTRACT

 

Fin fishes of the intertidal zone of the northern Arabian Gulf were collected from a hadra, a traditional stake-trap in which fishes move passively with the flood and ebb tide. Bi-weekly sampling from January 1982 to December 1984 yielded a total of 76 species representing 36 families. Best represented was the family Carangidae, with 10 species, whilst the Mugilidae and Sparidae were the most abundant numerically with 10,062 and 2,321 individuals, respectively. The 4 most abundant fish include Liza carinata (7,636), Valamugil seheli (1,982), Thryssa hamiltonii (1,043), and Nematalosa nasus (1,070). The remaining species were represented by less than one thousand individuals in the catch over the period of study.
