  • Tihomir Stefanov
Part of the Monographiae Biologicae book series (MOBI, volume 82)

Abstract

The ichthyofauna of Bulgaria is reviewed based on the published and original data. A total of 217 fish species belonging to 58 families have been reported. Of these, 194 species are native for Bulgaria and 23 are introduced. More than 140 species were reported for the Bulgarian fresh and brackish waters, and a total of 134 species for the Bulgarian part of the Black Sea. A full faunistic list with notes on origin, distribution, and ecology of the fish species is given
