The early history of signal crayfish introducion into Europe

Published Online: 6/1/2020


In the mid-1950s, there was a sudden paradigm shift in Swedish freshwater fisheries management. Apart from legal restrictions -- such as size and gear limitations, and closed seasons -- the release of newly, hatched fry or fingerlings had been the standard method of fisheries management. The number of annually released fry culminated from 5 million in 1905 to 235 million in 1939 (Hannerz, 1956). Ecologically-based criticism mounted, however, and the stockings declined to about 163 million in 1954.
