2010-51: An Annotated Checklist on the Introduced Aquatic Fauna of Two River Systems on Negros and Panay, Philippines

This paper presents an annotated list of 16 species of introduced aquatic fauna in Bago River in Negros Occidental and Jalaur River in Iloilo province in the Philippines. Eleven species of fish, three species of herptile, and two species of mollusk are discussed in this paper. The "janitor fish" or South American Sailfin Catfish (Pterygoplichthys disjunctivus), the Zebra Fish (Danio rerio), the Molly (Poecilia sphenops) appear to be new records of introduced species in Bago and Jalaur River systems. Introduction of these species are most likely through the aquaculture projects and the aquarium trade.
