Management Notes for this Location:
Reduction in native biodiversity: In Asia, one of the worst DOCumented negative effects on fish biodiversity has resulted from within country translocations, for example in Donghu Lake, Wuhan, China when the introduction of grass carp resulted in the decimation of submerged macrophytes and the consequent ecological changes brought about an upsurge of Hypophthalmichthys spp. (Aristichthys nobilis) and silver carps (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) and also the disappearance of most of the 60 fish species native to the lake (Chen, 1989) (Nguyen and Nakorn, 2004).
