In the Ukrainian rivers appeared dangerous predators

Every year commercial fish species is becoming less. Scientists warn that may soon Ukrainians can not take grandkids fishing — will catch nothing.

“Back in the thirties dried up stoked the stove”

— In recent years we have almost completely destroyed river ecosystem, — says Sergey Mezhzherin, doctor of biological Sciences, Professor Institute of Zoology. I. Schmalhausen. — In Ukraine there is a huge estuary — the sea of Azov, which was considered the most cost-effective and highly productive ecosystem. Here the fish bred naturally. About how much it was in Azov sea, says a historical example: in the area due to the lack of firewood up to the thirties of last century the house was heated by dried specimens, casting them into the furnace instead of logs. Now it seems incredible, however, the number of freshwater fish in the country (even compared to the seventies of the past century) has decreased at least thirty times. Peregorazhivanie dams of the Dnieper, Kuban, don, led to a sharp saloneni water. Now we can confidently talk about a real environmental disaster and in fact of mass death of fish in the rivers of our country.

“Every year in Ukraine disappear two rivers”

Another reason for the lack of fish in Ukraine: loss of grasslands and floodplains — the most scarce of the environment and natural resources in our territory. In addition, in recent years disappear… the river. For example, on the Kiev — Odessa highway signs with the names of small waterways exist, but they are not. They are either overgrown with weeds or completely gone underground. Continue reading

Predatory fish

The enemies of the perch a lot, and if it is almost everywhere in large numbers, it is only because of its simplicity and strong reproduction. All the predators – catfish, pike, pikeperch, burbot – not disdain them, sometimes catfish and pike almost prefer this to other fish; large perch eat small. Water birds and osprey also catch a lot of perch. The eggs it consumed other fish, especially char (in the North and stickleback) and water birds often die from calm, as mentioned above, or, alternatively, strong winds, some throw it on the shore. Perch often becomes a victim of his own greed: it happens that caught the fish praskolesy in the side Gill slit, which was getting worse, and dies together with the predator; sometimes also that bass is attacking stickleback and she is mortally wounded by his erect dorsal spines. Quite often he is exposed to the attack of parasites, especially in stagnant waters: in the guts he has often found a tape worm, and in the mouth he lives a special kind of parasitic crustacean, the so-called Oconee. In ponds and lakes, though not all, a huge amount of bass dies in winter from lack of air. The so-called spirit – spirane harmful gases acts on them before for pike, perch and roach, i.e., they snoot before these fish.

For this last exception, the majority of bass die, becoming food for humans.But, despite their large numbers, they do not have such commercial value as, for example, greater numbers of herring and Caspian roach and more valuable, and large bream, carp and perch; in the selling trade he is only salted or in frozen form and mostly used for local consumption.
