Piaractus brachypomus is highly valued as an aquaculture and ornamental fish species. However, it is frequently considered as a non-native or invasive species. In Polish waters P. brachypomus is an incidental non-native species, most likely released by aquarists, and it is unable to overwinter or reproduce. Outside its native distributional range,...

Parasitic copepods of the genus Sarcotaces are remarkable. They occur in galls inside skeletal the muscles of fishes and it is virtually impossible to overlook them, especially during fish handling and processing. The galls contain an intensively black ink-like substance that may stain fish tissue during filleting. They have a global distribution a...
