Ecological studies on the mosquito fish Gambusia affinis for encephalitis control with special reference to selective feeding on mosquito larvae and competition with the medaka, Oryzias latipes



Ecological studies on the mosquito fish Gambusia affinis for encephalitis control with special reference to selective feeding on mosquito larvae and competition with the medaka, Oryzias latipes



Japanese Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 17(2): 157-173



Gambusia affinis was first established at Tokushima City and Prefecture, Shikoku, Japan, in 1969 where it was subsequently studied in relation to the control of mosquitoes. Fish were collected from ponds and ditches where they had increased and repeatedly released into swamps, sewers, fallow rice fields etc., thus becoming established in 7 places in 1970, 36 in 1971, 76 in 1972, and 104 in 1973.
