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…

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.

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.

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.
