Reproductive features of Big-scale sand smelt, Atherina boyeri (Risso, 1810), which is an exotic fish species in Lake Egirdir (Turkey) were studied between March 2006 and August 2007 using 1433 individuals. According to 18 month GSI results, egg maturation starts in March of both 2006 and 2007 (2.74 and 1.67), and peaking in late June (9.16 and 13.44), decreases to its minimum level in July (4.61 and 1.41); spawning occurs late July. First mature length of females (Lm) was determined as 45.93… Expand

Are the Great Lakes at risk of new fish invasions from trans-Atlantic shipping?
TLDR
It is revealed that only one species within the candidate group is likely to potentially pose a ‘high risk’ to the Great Lakes, and this species is not among those predicted to survive ballast-water exchange during a trans-Atlantic voyage. Expand

Maturation, reproduction and recruitment of the sand smelt, Atherina boyeri Risso, 1810 (Pisces:Atherinidae) in the estuary of Mala Neretva River (southeastern Adriatic, Croatia)
TLDR
The reasons are difficult to determine but might be partly explained by the high and unpredictable temperature and salinity variations in the researched area that have led to previously described disturbances of the sand smelt life cycle, as in feeding and a high incidence of spinal deformities. Expand
Age and growth of the sand smelt, Atherina boyeri (Risso 1810), in the Mar Menor coastal lagoon (SE Iberian Peninsula)
TLDR
Age determination based on scale readings and validated by length frequency analysis shows that the population of sand smelt, Atherina boyeri (Risso 1810), in the Mar Menor (SE Iberian Peninsula) has a 3-year life cycle. Expand
Age, growth, mortality and sex ratio of sand smelt, Atherina boyeri Risso, 1810 (Pisces: Atherinidae) in the estuary of the Mala Neretva River (middle-eastern Adriatic, Croatia)
TLDR
The present study investigated the age, growth, mortality and morphometry of the sand smelt, Atherina boyeri, in the Mala Neretva River estuary (mid-eastern Adriatic Sea) and showed that the population is up to 4 years of age. Expand
Life-history patterns of the sandsmelt Atherina boyeri Risso, 1810 in the estuary of the Guadalquivir river, Spain
TLDR
In this unstable and productive environment A. boyeri displayed the same life-history tactics as Aphanius iberus, Gambusia affinis and Fundulus heteroclitus, three small fish species found in the same area and characterized by fast growth rates, early maturity, frequent spawning over a long breeding season and reduced longevity.

Study of a sand smelt (Atherina boyeri Risso 1810) population reproducing in fresh water
TLDR
It is shown that this species can undertake local migrations to colonize various habitats and favours its survival in very unstable Mediterranean environments. Expand
Age, growth and mortality of Atherina boyeri Risso, 1810 (Pisces: Atherinidae) in the Mesolongi and Etolikon lagoons (W. Greece)
TLDR
Age determinations based on scale readings show that the population of Atherina boyeri from the Mesolongi and Etolikon lagoons has a 3-year life cycle, and the exploitation rate indicates that the Population is slightly overexploited. Expand
On the reproductive biology of the sand smelt atherina boyeri risso pisces atherinidae and its evolutionary potential
TLDR
This analysis of the reproductive strategy shows that A. boyeri can rapidly adapt its life history and morphology to environments ranging from freshwater to polyhaline coastal lagoons and oceanic waters, and the optimum strategy is shown to be tied to temperate seasonality. Expand
A study of the population biology of Athevina boyeri Risso, 1810 in Aberthaw Lagoon, on the Bristol Channel, in South Wales
TLDR
Evidence is presented to suggest that in A. boyeri these eggs represent a ‘ store’ from which batches of eggs are subsequently released, and that the eggs around the largest mode may not represent the next batch to be spawned. Expand
