An electron and paper book Fishing: an ethological approach. Test Localities & Fish Species

Main results described in this book are obtained during fishing trips of author and his friends in the Russian Federation (in its Europen part up to Volga river), Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, partly in Baltic countries, Poland and Germany, beginning from 1970s. The main part of field experiments have been carried out in Dnipro river, in Ukraine, in three localities: village Pekari (near the Biological Station of the Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University), Cherkasy region, Kyiv city (the capital of Ukraine), Kyiv region, village Nedanchychi (near the former Sports Base for Hunters & Anglers), Chernigiv region, as well as in Khorol river in one locality: village Khomutets (near the Castle of Ivan Murav’yov-Apostol), Poltava region.

In the book, these localities no longer appear.

Represenatives of the following families of fish have been observed and tested (mainly in the field): Cyprinidae, Gasterosteidae, Percidae, Gobiidae (many of the Black Sea gobiid fish migrate into the rivers of this basin, including Dnipro river), Esocidae (Esox lucius), Centrarhidae (introduced pumpkinseed, Lepomis gibbosus, mainly in Danube delta and lakes), Salmonidae (Salmo trutta), Thymallidae (Thymullus thymulls), Acipenseridae, Anguillidae (Anguilla anguilla), Gadidae (Lota lota), Siluridae (Silurus glanis), Ictaluridae, Cobitidae, Eleotridae (invasive Percottus glehni), Cichlidae, Characinidae and Poecilidae (in laboratory), Labridae and Belonidae (Belone belone) (in the Black Sea) as well as Clupeidae (including the Black Sea sprat, Clupeonella cultriventris, migrated in fresh waters up to Belarus rivers) and Syngnatidae (including black-striped pipefish, Syngnathus nigrolineatus, also migrated in fresh waters up to Belarus rivers).

The most abundant freshwater bentivorous common roach, Rutilus rutilus, and piscivorous common perch, Perca fluviatilis, are used as model fish.

Other invasive fish, first of all in Belarus, northern and middle parts of Ukraine (e.g., Semenchenko et al., 2009; Mastitsky et al., 2010; Slynko et al., 2011), in farms, artificial reservoirs, natural lakes and rivers, have been observed.
