The effects of noise disturbance from various recreational boating activities common to inland waters on the cardiac physiology of a freshwater fish, the largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides).
In these studies, taxa such as Largemouth Bass (Micropterus salmoides), Gizzard Shad (Dorosoma cepedianum), and Western Mosquitofish (Gambusia affinis) were generalist reservoir native and non-native fishes that distinguished fish assemblages in reservoir tributaries and unimpounded streams.
A positive response has been found in other fish such as Mozambique tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus), common carp (Cyprinus carpio), bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus), and largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) (Badenhuizen 1967; Cherry et al., 1975; Cincotta & Stauffer, 1984).
Oreochromis spp., Micropterus salmoides, Cyprinus carpio), which in some cases pose a potential risk for native aquatic fauna through predation, competition and niche overlap (Zambrano, Perrow, Aguirre-Hidalgo, & Macias-Garcia, 1999; Tapia & Zambrano, 2003; Dominguez-Dominguez, Perez-Ponce de Leon, Martinez-Meyer, & Zambrano, 2006; Cordova-Tapia, Contreras, & Zambrano, 2014).
Previously annual species composition of the fin-fish catch in Lake Naivasha for the period 1987-2000 was dominated by Oreochromis leucostictus 71.7%, Coptodon zilli 8.8% and Micropterus salmoides 19.5% [6].
Seven species are observed in lentic environment (Micropterus salmoides, Aristichtys nobilis, Carassius auratus, Ctenopharyngodon idella, Cyprinus carpio specularis, Hypophtalmichthys molitrix, Sander lucioperca), four in lotic environment (Alosa Alosa, Alosa fallax, Mugil cephalus, Petromyzon marinus) and five are common to both environments (Anguilla Anguilla, Barbus setivimensis, Cyprinus carpio carpio, Rutilus rutilus, Alburnus alburnus).
In our finding, the occurrence of a great number of taste buds together with sharp teeth suggests that food processing and gestation work occur simultaneously in the pharynx and this may determine the suitability of potential food items prior to swallowing, as proposed by (Linser et al., 1998) in Micropterus salmoides. The presence of taste buds in the gills of all fishes was related to their role in participation in tasting process at the pharyngeal region, in which the taste buds are the sense organs of the gustatory system of fish and resemble that present in other vertebrates (Kasumyan, 1997; Fishelson et al., 2004).
Fish that generate a lot of expansion in a short period of time, such as the largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides, can capture their prey in less than a tenth of a second (Svanback, Wainwright, & Ferry-Graham, 2002).
Las neoplasias ovaricas en teleosteos son escasamente mencionadas como hallazgos de muestreo en especies como Cyprinus carpio (17, 31), Ictalurus punctatus (20), Micropterus salmoides (24), Oryzias latipes (13, 15), Perca flavescens (3), Mystus macropterus (22) y en Xiphophorus maculatus (6), existiendo mas frecuencia de reportes en ejemplares de peces obtenidos por hibridacion de especies ornamentales (8, 9, 18, 21).
