The Salton Sea is an endorheic, 980-km2 salt lake in the Sonoran Desert of southern California. The historical fish community switched from freshwater to marine species as salinity increased due to evaporation and brackish water inflows. Three species, bairdiella (Bairdiella icistia), orangemouth corvina (Cynoscion xanthulus), and sargo (Anisotremus davidsoni), established from introductions beginning in 1929. Thirty-four marine fish species from the northern Gulf of California were introduced… Expand

THE RESPONSE OF SALTON SEA FISH EGGS AND LARVAE TO SALINITY STRESS
TLDR
Concern has been expressed for the continued survival of these three species on a self-sustaining basis in the Salton Sea because of a persistent increase in the salinity of theSalton Sea in recent years due to agricultural soil leaching. Expand
Fish biology and fisheries ecology of the Salton Sea, California
Studies of the fisheries ecology and fish biology of the Salton Sea, California, were conducted in 1999 and 2000 using 50 m gill nets in river, nearshore, pelagic, and estuarine areas. Total lengthsExpand
Growth and production of some important species of fish in a Mexican coastal lagoon system
In terms of biomass, the three dominant fish species in the Huizache-Caimanero lagoon system during 1975–76 were the mullet Mugil curema, the anchovy, Anchoa panamensis and the catfish, GaleichthysExpand
Fishes and the environmental status of South African estuaries
Abstract More than 100 fish species are associated with southern African estuaries, many of which are caught by recreational anglers and/or commercial fishermen. Mismanagement of either a catchmentExpand
Growth rate and the role of Oreochromis mossambicus (Peters) in the fishery of a tropical, upland, deep reservoir in Sri Lanka
TLDR
The spawning of O. mossambicus in Victoria reservoir appears to be enhanced during periods in which the water level fluctuations are relatively small, and compare favourably with those of other populations and fisheries in the lowland irrigation reservoirs of Sri Lanka. Expand
The Introduced Fish Problem and the Aquarium Fish Industry
TLDR
It is imperative that the aquarium fish industry and trade take measures to curtail such releases, and industry must assist in public education to reduce introductions by aquarists. Expand

Tilapia culture in saline waters: a review.
TLDR
Evaluated tilapia culture in saline waters finds that it is technically feasible to produce seed by clutch-removal management technique in salinities less than 18 ppt and to grow the fish in 35 ppt, but production technology needs to be verified in several locations. Expand
Reproductive biology ofSarotherodon mossambicus, an introduced species, in an ancient man-made lake in Sri Lanka
TLDR
The reproductive biology of Sarotherodon mossambicus (Peters), a species exotic to Sri Lanka, was studied in Parakrama Samudra — an ancient man-made lake, and the egg diameter distribution indicates the presence of reserve oocytes and yolked oocytes. Expand
Some aspects of the dynamics of populations important to the management of the commercial marine fisheries
TLDR
In order to apply the theory developed here to the tropical tuna fishery, it will be necessary to compile statistics of catch, abundance and intensity of fishing over a considerable series of years, beginning as early in the history of the fishery as possible. Expand
