Review of the spawning requirements and feeding ecology of silver carp (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) and reevaluation of its use in fisheries and aquaculture.

In this paper, available fisheries and aquaculture data on silver carp are reviewed from conservation, fish¬eries management. and aquaculture production perspectives in order to reevaluate its perfor¬mance with respect to the original rationales for its use in fisheries management, its role in aqua-culture pond ecosystems, and possible impacts of naturalization in new environments.
