Alimentary canal of fishes has a great variety of structural Peculiarities which are important in
fisheries and biology. The aim of this study was to explain the anatomical and histological
aspects of stomach and pyloric caeca in L. aurata, L. abu and M. cephalus (Mugilidae) from the
Caspian Sea. Fifteen adult individuals of mugilidae; Liza aurata, L. abu and Mugil cephalus
were collected from three fishing areas in the Caspian Sea, northwestern and the northeastern
Persian Gulf. The length and diameter of stomach and the length, diameter and number of
pyloric caeca were measured. L. aurata had larger stomach than L. abu. Anatomical and
histological study showed stomach is U-shaped and gizzard like; it is divided into anterior
cardiac and posterior pyloric portions, while pyloric caeca is a finger-like straight organ. In
transverse section, the wall of the stomach and pyloric caeca is deeply folded with four-layered
general structure. Lenght and diameter of stomach showed strong correlation with standard
length of specimens.
