Annotated Bibliography of Grass Carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) from Russian-language Literature

By Bogutskaya, N., Jones, L.A., Mandrak, N.E., and Cudmore, B.


This annotated bibliography has been prepared to summarize the available information pertaining to the distribution, migration, spawning, development, feeding, bioenergetics and physiological limits of Grass Carp (Ctenopharyngodon idella) from Russian-language literature. Grass Carp is native to large rivers of eastern Asia, including the Amur River basin which borders Russia, and has been introduced into Russian waters. As a result, a considerable portion of Grass Carp research conducted in the native range has been published in the Russian language. With the increasing risk of invasion by Grass Carp into the Great Lakes region, a translation and compilation of Russian literature will help to educate scientists and managers, and will inform a binational ecological Grass Carp risk assessment for the Great Lakes basin.
