Abstract

Morphological Variability of Mugil cephalus (Linnaeus, 1758) were studied in traditional morphometric measurements in 25 morphological characters from 71 specimens in two fishery areas in Bandar Abbas Port (37 specimens) and Qeshm Island (34 specimens) in northeastern Persian Gulf . Univariate analysis of variance showed significant differences between the means of the two groups for 17 out of 25 standardized morphometric measurements. Principal Component Analysis results (PCA) for morphometric data indicated that samples of Bandar Abbas Port and Qeshm Island with high degree of distinction between two locations with respect on morphometric characters. In discriminant function analysis (DFA), the proportion of individuals correctly classified into their original groups was 100%.
