Invasive fish threat in Manyas Lake (Turkey)
Manyas Gölü (Türkiye)’nde istilacı balık tehdidi

Gülşah SAÇ [1] , Özcan GAYGUSUZ [2] , Ali ERTÜRK [3]


Two non-native freshwater fish species, Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 and Pseudorasbora parva (Temminck & Schlegel, 1846) were recorded for the first time for the Manyas Lake, and the number of the non-native fish species living in the lake has increased to three. These non-native fish species described as invasive were considered as new threats to the lake, which is already threatened by eutrophication and habitat degradation.
Yerli olmayan iki tatlısu balığı türü, Gambusia holbrooki Girard, 1859 ve Pseudorasbora parva (Temminck & Schlegel, 1846) Manyas Gölü için ilk kez kaydedilmiştir ve gölde yaşayan egzotik balıkların sayısı üçe yükselmiştir. İstilacı olarak tanımlanan bu egzotik balıklar, ötrofikasyon ve habitat tahribatı tehdidi de olan göl için yeni tehditler olarak tanımlanmıştır.
