PURPOSE: Empirical swim speed data are needed to manage invasive bigheaded or " Asian " carps (Figure 1). However, such data are limited within the scientific literature. The large size and active temperament of the carp combined with current legislative restrictions concerning transport, make them difficult to acclimatize and test in traditional l...

On 24 February 2014, commercial fishers caught an unusually large Hypophthalmichthys nobilis (Bighead Carp) from an oxbow lake in northwestern Mississippi. We examined it to determine age, gonadal development, and fecundity. The specimen was 1316 mm total length, 49.7 kg, and 11 years old. It had asymmetric ovaries that collectively represented 15....

... Specimens of the taxa considered here were collected in 2014-2015 in the free-flowing Mississippi River main channel and secondary channels using a benthic sled and subsequently preserved as outlined by Harrison, Slack, Lewis, Collins, and Murphy (2018) or found in the diets of river sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus spp.) collected in the free-flowing Missouri River according to the methods outlined by Gosch, Gemeinhardt, Civiello, Harrison, and Bonneau (2019). Detailed collection data for each taxon are noted as 'New records' in the later sections. ...

... En base a una evaluación de todas las especies registradas en FishBase, el intervalo térmico preferido por los loricáridos es de aproximadamente 20 a 28ºC (Mendoza et al., 2007). Toleran agua salobre de 6-12 ppt, aunque no se encuentran en salinidades adyacentes más altas (Hoover, Hahn & Collins, 2014). ...
