The fish Perccottus glenii: history of introduction to western regions of Eurasia

  • Andrey N. Reshetnikov
Note

Abstract

The fish,Perccottus glenii, appeared in western regions of Eurasia in 1916 and has several centres of invasion. Ways of distribution are discussed. Uncontrolled distribution of this fish leads to significant negative changing of freshwater ecosystems.
