The fish fauna of the river Someş/Szamos basin

The first records offish species in the drainage area of the River Some§/Szamos are those dealing with the fish fauna of the entire Transylvania (Fridvaldsky, 1767; Benkö, 1778; Bielz, 1853, 1856, 1888) or of Hungary before 1918 (Herman, 1887; Vutskits, 1918). The data presented by these authors are...

Description
Summary:The first records offish species in the drainage area of the River Some§/Szamos are those dealing with the fish fauna of the entire Transylvania (Fridvaldsky, 1767; Benkö, 1778; Bielz, 1853, 1856, 1888) or of Hungary before 1918 (Herman, 1887; Vutskits, 1918). The data presented by these authors are too vague (excepting Vutskits for some species), mentioning the occurrence of the species in some rivers, but not the localities. A single paper is devoted only to the fish fauna of the Some$/Szamos river, but deals only with a restricted stretch of this: that of Jászfalusi (1943) on the fishes present in the Some$ul Mic between Giláu and Cluj. More details are provided in the monographs of Bánárescu devoted to the bony fishes (1964) and to the lampreys (1969) of whole Romania and to the paper of Bánárescu and Müller (1960) of the fish fauna of the historical Transylvania. Data about the Hungarian section of the river Szamos were earlier published by Vásárhelyi (1960), and more recently by Harka (1995, 1997). The data mentioned in the publications listed above on the distribution and frequency of the fish species in the Romanian section of the river are now outdated because of the strong modifications of the habitat during the last three decades; it was therefore necessary to make new investigations.
