  5. Fish Fish dominate the ______________ in most lakes, streams, rivers and estuaries. • Their large size and _________________ greatly influence the biological structure of aquatic ecosystems. • Fish occupy several different levels of the aquatic food chain • and comprise over ____________ of the earth’s vertebrate species.

  6. Fish are the main ______________ product harvested from inland waters. • _________________ recognize that fish yield is a function of the whole-lake or stream production process.

  7. Fish are almost ____________, except in mountain lakes where it is _____________ impossible for fish to pass upstream over large waterfalls that guard the lake; except when ______________ has completely changed the natural balance.

  8. Distribution and ____________ preferences Fish are masters of the turbulent water environment except for early _____________ life stages. • Fish actively _______ sites for feeding, breeding, and resting. The chemical and biological features of littoral habitats is directly correlated with • the _______ (richness) and ________ of fish species.

  9. Many lake fish show strong preferences for a habitat that includes • a diverse collection of __________ and emergent _____________. Important aspects of the submerged vegetation that attract fish include: • _______________ of the plants • density of the animal ____________ • species ____________

  10. High plant diversity supports a great diversity of _____________________ that are food for the fish. Additionally, a rich ____________ layer coating most submerged vegetation feeds small juvenile fish which use this vegetation as a refuge from ___________________.

  11. Divisions of freshwater fish groups I. Primary Groups with little or no ___________ for seawater; • lungfish, paddlefishes, pikes, minnows, catfishes, centrarchids (___________), etc. II. Secondary Groups usually ___________________ but with enough salt tolerance so that members can enter the ocean and • sometimes cross ______________________ • some gars & pikes, killifishes, live bearers (perch), cichlids.

  18. III. _______________ • Migratory between freshwater and the sea for purpose of _____________. ______________: diadromous fishes which spend most of their life in the sea and mature. • When fully grown they return to _____________________. ______________: diadromous fishes which spend most of their life in freshwater and go to sea as adults to breed.

  19. _________________: regularly migrating between freshwater and the sea for purposes other than breeding. • Marine: spawning in marine water, with larvae and juvenile stages briefly in freshwater (______________). • Freshwater: spawning in fresh water with larvae and juvenile stages; ____________________ before returning to freshwater.

  20. _______________ Estuarine fishes that often and freely go between marine and freshwater, • differing from above categories which usually are capable of changing mediums________________________.

  21. __________________ in freshwater fishes Freshwater fishes are ________________ to their medium • and tend to gain water by diffusion through any ______________________. If uncompensated, the inward diffusion would dilute the body fluids to the point that • the their necessary ________________ functions could no longer be accomplished. • A state referred to as “________________” • How do they compensate? • Can’t waterproof (______). • A balance must be maintained by driving the ____________.

  22. Osmoregulation The task of removing water is accomplished by the kidney. The kidneys of freshwater fish are capable of excreting urine that is more _______________________. Additional contribution to ion balance by the urinary bladder: • ____________________ of Na+ and Cl- through the wall of the bladder.

  23. Osmoregulation Although the concentration of salt in urine is low, • the _______________ causes a significant amount of salt to be lost. Salts are also lost by ____________ from the body. Losses are balanced by __________ in food and by ________ absorption through the gills.

  24. Distribution and habitat preferences Temperature and _________________ also regulate fish distribution and habitat preferences. There is a wide variety of thermal preferences both among species and __________________. • Three thermal categories are: • cold-water • cool-water • _____________ fishes __________ often prefer temperatures that are several degrees warmer than adults of the same species.

  25. Thermal preferences (cont.) These different thermal preferences act to _________________with different thermal tolerances during summer stratification. Thereby, the thermal preferences can either enhance or reduce _______________ for other resources depending on whether they __________similar species in more limited areas or separate ____________________. Although in winter, many species move to deeper water, ____________________ due to the much lower levels of activity and feeding associated with reduced _____________________.

  26. Wading shorebirds from the west coast of North America

  27. Temperature and oxygen gradients can interact to • exclude fish from all or a fraction of a water body. ________________________ • are a common problem in ________ eutrophic • warm water reservoirs and some natural lakes. The hypolimnion initially becomes _________ in summer and the ____________________ gradually rises through the season. Meanwhile, the thermocline is descending (_________________ as surface layer warms).

  28. Oxygen-temperature squeeze (cont.) Temperatures in the epilimnion and metalimnion can approach or ____________ limits, while dissolved oxygen falls below usable concentrations (__________) in the hypolimnion.

  29. Habitat preferences (cont.) Fish that are vulnerable to predation use a combination of • ____________________ to minimize their exposure to _____________ predators. • Silversides, Menidia sp., migrate from cover in littoral areas to feed in the _________________ epilimnion offshore at dawn • but return to shorelines in the morning before they are ___________. • They could fill their stomachs if they remained offshore, • but they minimize daylight exposure to offshore __________________.

  30. Menidia sp., silversides

  31. Similarly, the pelagic juvenile _______________, Oncorhynchus nerka, • stay in ______________ water during the day, • and ascend to feed for a short period in the zooplankton-rich epilimnion at _____ and dawn. • They ascend when light levels are just sufficient to __________________ • but dark enough to minimize the probability of detection by _____________. • In contrast, the older, less vulnerable kokanee feed _________ in the lighted epilimnion.

  32. Reproduction Reproductive strategies consist of reproductive traits that enable fish to leave some ________. • Reproductive traits reflect responses to environmental fluctuations. Traits that vary, include: • ___________ according to size and age • reproductive _____ • size of ________ (large eggs---larger larvae--- • mouth size, swimming capacity, sensory abilities increase with size reproductive behavior, __________ timing, ___________, the number of times spawning occurs in the life of the female (parity)

  33. Age category terminology 1. Age groups represent the number of years a fish ____________ • age group 0 = fish in ___________ of life • age group 1 = fish in second year of life. 2. ____________: fish born in 1997 are members of the 1997 year class. Fry and fingerling; variously defined, often with different meanings to different people, should not be used unless specifically defined. • ____: the time between hatching and the time at which they reach 25 mm in length • ____________: fishes between 25 mm and the length at age 1 (Piper et al., 1982).

  34. Age category terminology/Aging _________ fishes: newly hatched. • Aging methods: • scale annuli, circuli, focus • ___________

  35. Feeding Fish are often the only important large aquatic predators and results of their __________________ • Example: one small fish can eat hundreds more zooplankton than the largest predatory zooplankter. Effect of fish on zooplankton __________________

  36. Feeding may be divided among 1. pelagic fish, which feed in open water _______________(shad, herring, whitefish, minnows) or piscivorous (mosquito fish, white bass), may also eat ________________ • some feed at surface (trout, sunfish) 2. littoral, feed at ___________

Benthic and littoral feeding is more generalized and can include: • grazing on aquatic plants (___________) • ingestion of bottom debris (_____________), • covered with ______________, protozoans, small insect larvae, and worms • ingestion of benthic invertebrates

  38. Feeding In _______________, • some fish eat _____________________ • some pluck insect larvae and crustaceans from the _____________ • some feed on _________ in pools • some seize ____________ adult insects

  39. Resource _______________ Some fish are ____________, while others are very specialized in their selection of food. This resource partitioning means that the fish eat only ______________ of the available food and thus avoid too much _________________ with others.

  40. Example: Two species of trout: _______ trout (Salvelus fontinalis) and _________ trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) • brook feed mainly on bottom, taking chironomid and _________________ • rainbow, feed near the surface on ____________ organisms in summer

  41.
