Özet

Kirankaya S.G., Ekmekci F.G. 2013. Life-history traits of the invasive population of Prussian carp, Carassius gibelio (Actinopterigi: Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae), from Gelingullu Reservoir, Yozgat, Turkey. Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 43 (1): 31-40. Background. Prussian carp, Carassius gibelio (Bloch, 1782), is one of the successful invaders of freshwater systems of Turkey. Although, Prussian carp has rapidly expanded its area of distribution in Anatolia during the last two decades, there is limited information about its biological features in new environments. In order to determine the impact of invasive species on ecosystem, the life history characteristics of an exotic fish species in different locations should be monitored. The presently reported study provides information about the growth and reproduction of Prussian carp introduced into a reservoir in Central Anatolia.
