Assessing upstream invasion risk in alien freshwater fishes based on intrinsic variations in swimming speed performance

Starrs, Tyrie; Starrs, Danswell; Lintermans, Mark; Fulton, Christopher


Abstract – Managing the spread and impact of invasive species requires an understanding of what limits their dispersal into new areas. Here, we investigated an intrinsic component of invasive species dispersal, via assessments of the swimming speed performance of four species of alien freshwater fish at risk of invading the upper reaches of a montane river system in south-east Australia. Using water flow measurements taken from a range of potential barriers to their upstream dispersal...[Show more]
