Current knowledge on non‐native freshwater fish introductions
This review provides a contemporary account of knowledge on aspects of introductions of non-native fish species and includes issues associated with introduction pathways, ecological and economic
Voracious invader or benign feline? A review of the environmental biology of European catfish Silurus glanis in its native and introduced ranges
TLDR
This investigation was supported in part through research grants from the Environment Agency and the UK Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science and the EC Marie Curie programme.
Managing non‐native fish in the environment
TLDR
Control programmes such as those against common carp Cyprinus carpio in Australia and topmouth gudgeon Pseudorasbora parva in England and Wales suggest there is potential for invasions to be managed and controlled within large spatial areas, even if their eradication may not be feasible.
Pan‐continental invasion of Pseudorasbora parva: towards a better understanding of freshwater fish invasions
TLDR
The Pseudorasbora parva invasion has provided quantitative data for the development of 1) early warning systems across different spatial scales; 2) rapid eradication programmes prior to natural spread in open systems and 3) sound risk assessments with emphasis on plasticity of life history traits.
Non-native fish in aquaculture and sport fishing in Brazil: economic benefits versus risks to fish diversity in the upper River Paraná Basin

    Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries
  • 7 February 2012
TLDR
While non-native fish in the upper Paraná River support provisioning ecosystem services of substantial economic value, the principal species used represent high risks to fish diversity and conservation, it is recommended local management should concentrate on reducing these risks through use of more appropriate species in these ecosystem services.
Fish, climate and the Gulf Stream: the influence of abiotic factors on the recruitment success of cyprinid fishes in lowland rivers
TLDR
The underlying influence of broad-scale climatic effects on the recruitment of riverine fishes, in spite of local variations in biotic and abiotic conditions, is demonstrated.
Fitness consequences of individual specialisation in resource use and trophic morphology in European eels
TLDR
The European eel provides a rare empirical example ofindividual specialisation in resource use and trophic morphology in a natural population occurring at a very small spatial scale and demonstrates the existence of disruptive selection associated with individual specialisation.
Population-Level Metrics of Trophic Structure Based on Stable Isotopes and Their Application to Invasion Ecology
TLDR
New metrics derived from stable isotope data are applied to provide quantitative measures of trophic diversity within populations or species to test the hypothesis that sympatric invaders belonging to the same functional feeding group occupy a smaller isotopic niche than their allopatric counterparts.
