Adapted from the weed risk assessment (WRA) of Pheloung, Williams, and Halloy, the fish invasiveness scoring kit (FISK) was proposed as a screening tool for freshwater fishes. This article describes improvements to FISK, in particular the incorporation of confidence (certainty/uncertainty) ranking of the assessors' responses, and reports on the calibration(More)
The deliberate introduction of new species can have unexpected negative consequences and we show here how a recently introduced fish, the invasive Asian cyprinid Pseudorasbora parva, is causing increased mortality and totally inhibiting spawning in an already endangered native fish, the European cyprinid Leucaspius delineatus. This threat is caused by an(More)
In this paper it is argued, using examples of disease emergence in aquatic animals in Europe, that the introduction of non-native species drives disease emergence by both extending the geographic range of parasites and pathogens and facilitating host-switching. Enteric red mouth disease and infectious haematopoietic necrosis of salmonids have extended their(More)
Ecological theory on biological invasions attempts to characterize the predictors of invasion success and the relative importance of the different drivers of population establishment. An outstanding question is how propagule pressure determines the probability of population establishment, where propagule pressure is the number of individuals of a species(More)
The majority of pathogens that cause high host mortalities are capable of infecting more than 1 host species. One characteristic of pathogens, which enables infection of multiple hosts, is the existence of free-living infectious stages, e.g., zoospores that are produced in vast numbers. Understanding the influence of environmental factors, particularly(More)
27 28 In managing non-native species, surveillance programmes aim to minimise the 29 opportunity for invasions to develop from initial introductions through early detection. 30 However, this is dependent on surveillance methods being able to detect species at 31 low levels of abundance to avoid false-negative recordings through imperfect 32 detection. We(More)
The expansion of aquaculture and the demand for ornamental fish have resulted in the large-scale movements of aquatic animals and their pathogens. Here we review the most important non-native fish and shellfish pathogens in European waters and their global impacts on wild fish host populations. The role of theoretical models in the study of the impact of(More)
Individual specialisation can lead to the exploitation of different trophic and habitat resources and the production of morphological variability within a population. Although the ecological causes of this phenomenon are relatively well known, its consequences on individual fitness are less recognised. We have investigated the extent of individual(More)
A recent threat to European fish diversity was attributed to the association between an intracellular parasite, Sphaerothecum destruens, and a healthy freshwater fish carrier, the invasive Pseudorasbora parva originating from China. The pathogen was found to be responsible for the decline and local extinction of the European endangered cyprinid Leucaspius(More)
Relationships between environmental variables and 0+fish in the upper River Garonne (France) were studied at different habitat scales during late August 1995. In total, 3911 0+ fish representing 21 species were sampled using point abundance sampling by electrofishing. Fish reproductive function of floodplain channels was evaluated using principal components(More)
