Fish species introduction by accidental escape from aquaculture in the high Parana River basin Introducao de especies de peixes por escapes acidentais de tanques de cultivo em rios da Bacia do Rio Parana, Brasil



Fish species introduction by accidental escape from aquaculture in the high Parana River basin Introducao de especies de peixes por escapes acidentais de tanques de cultivo em rios da Bacia do Rio Parana, Brasil



Revista Brasileira de Zoologia. jun; 162: 557-560



Species composition and abundance of fishes that escaped from aquaculture facilities during catastrophic flooding in the Paranapanema and Tibagi rivers, in January, 1997 was estimated. In all, 1,292,000 adult individuals belonging to 11 species and 1 hybrid, were introduced into these rivers; only one species was native. The disaster is attributed to the illegal occupation of the river banks, and the non observance of standard measures designed to avoid escapement.
