Huseyin Sasi

Abstract:
Pseudophoxinus anatolicus (Hanko, 1924) is an endemic and endengared fish in Anatolia. The species has been restricted to Beysehir Lake and Akgöl Lake in central Anatolia. Now this species disappeared in Beysehir Lake because of to be prey of an alien fish, predator species as pikeperch, Sander lucioperca. However, it has recently been discovered as occurring in Eregli marshes and associated tributaries (Konya). We have found this species from a new locality in Gödet Dam Lake province of Karaman. The population of minnow is restricted range and decline in habitat quality and habitat loss. Conservation status, identification, distribution, abundance, habitat and ecology, reproduction, threats and conservation recommendation is given.
