    Karlos sorry missed your question before. It’s illegal to remove either the Aphanius or the Cobitis as both are on the IUCN Red List. I know Manuel and some others are breeding the baeticus though. I’d actually really like to have a crack at breeding the Cobitis too….

    thx…another useless law imho…better if they did a program or something

    Indeed, illegal to take them to breed but no programme in place to protect the habitat…dohhh…

    Hi Matt,

    Just some things. There are protection programs going on, although not so effective as you could see… I am not sure (will check) but I think that the A. baeticus are being captive bred to reinforce the wild populations, which is not easy because until things get more clear, every population should be treated separately. Just think that until some years ago A. baeticus and A. saourensis were considered the same as A. iberus…

    We don´t breed nor keep these fish

    Manuel, a couple of questions if you don’t mind. Are there any specific programmes in place to protect the habitats? In the case of this population at least it seems that a lack of water is the major limiting factor. Are you saying that you don’t keep this particular population of A. baeticus or you don’t have any of the species at all?

    Cheers

    Matt

    Great pictures Matt, I would love to be able to search and net new ponds and water ways like that
    This could be Iberochondrostoma lemmingii – very similar mouth shape


    This could be Atherina boyeri, permanent freshwater populations have been reported in the same areas as the cobitis and Iberochondrostoma

    Looking at the operculum on the Mullet I would hazard a guess at Liza aurata
