Reproduction biology in a native European catfish S. glanis, 1758, population in Menzelet Reservoir. S. glanis is cited as present in some rivers in the UK, e.g. However it still accounts for only a small percentage of European freshwater aquaculture compared with the main species, rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), brown trout (Salmo trutta) and common carp (Cyprinus carpio) -- total production of S. glanis was 602 tonnes in 1993, increasing to 2000 tonnes in 2002, and has since stabilised at >700 tonnes/year. Due to the variable regulations around (de)registration of pesticides, your national list of registered pesticides or relevant authority should be consulted to determine which products are legally allowed for use in your country when considering chemical control.

In the UK, wels catfish, because they are non-native, require an ILFA (Introduction of Live Fish Act) license for introduction as part of regulatory legislation control and enforcement. Establishment success in France has been restricted by cold winter temperatures of <10ºC (David, 2006). by Cowx, I. G.]. Assessing the effects of climate change on aquatic invasive species. They can also use holes or burrows of clay and muddy bottom substrate of lakes and ponds and are often hidden among dense macrophyte cover. Zaikov, A., Iliev, I., Hubenova, T., 2008.

Výzkumný Ústav Rybárský a Hydrobiologický Vodnany, 29:3-9. From phylogenetic analysis it seems likely that wels catfish represent an early diversification of Siluriformes (Vittas et al., 2011). There is intensive daytime use of littoral habitat, resting within dense vegetation (Copp et al., 2009).

The diet of small juveniles is sometimes almost entirely invertebrates, but can also be composed of benthic or mid-water column organisms such as Chironomidae, and during their first year S. glanis take an increasing proportion of young-of-the-year (YoY) fish. Filet de Silure. The potential risk of hybridization with native species is likely to be limited to native Silurus species, such as the native congener S. aristotelis in Greece. 10 (3), 252-282. http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/loi/faf DOI:10.1111/j.1467-2979.2008.00321.x, Froese R, Pauly D, 2012. Fish consumption is low in central and eastern European countries in comparison to western Europe, which may be related to economic factors including income, fisheries trading and distribution (fish is more expensive than meat in most eastern European countries). The large size suggests high potential for dispersal (Copp et al., 2009), although the limited available information on movement and migration suggests that the species demonstrates considerable site fidelity (Carol et al., 2007). > 10°C, Cold average temp.

Options including draining of lakes, application of rotenone, capture of fish by fyke and seine netting, and electrofishing should be all reviewed in control management and risk assessment plans (Britton et al., 2009). They are a demersal species, find refuge in crevices and woody root habitats, and prefer slow flowing rivers and weedy covered, vegetated lakes. Bogut, I., Opacak, A., Stevic, I., Bogdanic, C., 1995.

River Hampshire Avon assessment of risk posed by S. glanis. Growth and diet of European catfish S. glanis in early and late invasion stages. The ecological trophic effect of S. glanis is unclear; some authors consider that the species can decimate tench (Tinca tinca) populations while others are of the view that as they are to some extent scavengers, their predatory impact may be benign rather than intense (Copp et al., 2009). http://www.fishbase.org, Gozlan RE, Flower CJ, Pinder AC, 2003. Since 1975, it has been farmed for its meat in pond cultures in Italy and former Yugoslavia, and also in its native range in Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Lithuania (and also Belarus -- Dokuchayeva, 2011), where the species is considered an expensive meat delicacy. Le silure glane possède de nombreuses petites dents. Their eyes are small and they rely on their barbels and olfactory cavities to sense their prey and environment rather than vision. A potential beneficial ecological effect is that S. glanis can predate on signal crayfish (Pacifastacus leniusculus), which is an invasive species in Europe that is adversely effecting native crayfish populations (Carol et al., 2009; Copp et al., 2009).

Native to eastern Europe and western Asia it is now established in several countries to the west and south of its native range. Comparative analysis of results of using different food rations in juvenile wels (Silurus glanis) culture. There is one clear seasonal peak in spawning per year, between May and July. In the UK, the government has developed an environmental risk strategy including risk identification, risk assessment, risk management and risk review and reporting. Triantafyllidis et al. Son nom scientifique est Amiurus nebulosus Le silure est un poisson parfois nommé à tort poisson-chat. However the species still accounts for only a small percentage of European freshwater aquaculture. Its greater production in Bulgaria has been suggested (Hadjinikolova et al., 2010). Native populations extend from Germany to Eastern Europe including Poland and southern Sweden, and also from northern Iran and southern Turkey to the Baltic states and Russia, and to the Aral sea of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan (Copp et al., 2009). 2011; Martino et al.

Pairing up of males and females commences during migration as they proceed to compete for best spawning grounds in the reach of the river and in heavily vegetated lakes. The wels catfish S. glanis is part of the family Siluridae, a group of freshwater fish native to Europe, Asia and Africa. Hendry, A. P., Wenburg, J. K., Bentzen, P., Volk, E. C., Quinn, T. P., 2000. It appears to establish relatively easily after introduction, especially in warmer climates such as around the Mediterranean (Crivelli, 1995). 2003), and also overwintering mortality as S. glanis larvae are unable to survive low temperatures <13ºC (David, 2006; Copp et al.

Body colour is variable but normally dark greenish-black with creamy yellow sides creating a mottled effect.They are solitary, predatory, opportunistic scavengers that hunt for stragglers (Boujard, 1995; Copp et al., 2009; Britton et al., 2010).

Most research on the environmental requirements of S. glanis has been focussed on introduced ranges in western Europe rather than northern habitats, as warmer water temperatures cause more serious ecological impacts, for example rapid growth (Boulêtreau et al. http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0050840 doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0050840, Czarnecki, M., Andrzejewski, W., Mastynski, J., 2012.

The different routes of introduction are pertinent regarding release of non-native fish, as some routes such as angling have a greater risk of unregulated transfer activities from fishermen in unsupervised lakes. danger : le silure glane (Silurus glanis). When several references are cited, they may give conflicting information on the status. They have a tiny dorsal fin made up of a single spine and 4-5 dorsal soft rays, one anal spine, 83-95 soft anal rays and a caudal fin of 17 soft rays (Froese and Pauly, 2012).
