Sharifpour: # 297, West Fatemi Ave., P.O. Box: 14155-6116, Tehran, Iran, or by E. mail: ijfs@ifro.ir

The desirable style of the paper:

- Title: Title should be brief and informative reflecting the purpose and content of the study (species should be identified by their scientific name).

- Author(s): The full name of the author(s) should be listed under the title.

- Affiliation(s): The affiliation and address of the author(s) should be stated, identifiable by an index number in case of more than one author.

- Abstract: An abstract not more than 250 words should be attached, identifying upfront the scientific working hypothesis and reporting on the key findings only.
