The fish faunistical research of the waters
of the Őrség was finished by a final report at the start of the year.
The resoults were presented at the XXIII. Piscatorial Scientific Consultation,
which appeared in print since then.
workgroup handed in an application about the "Fish faunistical
research of the Dráva-Mura river-systems". As the application
was accepted we started the work in May. Seven Gobio uranoscopus were
caught near Letenye. We thought that time, that these fish were drifted
by the floodings from the Slovenian section of the river Mura. The
occuring of this species was not known from the Slovenian part of
the Mura, so its Hungarian occuring has got a big importance. The
surveying started at the river Dráva at autumn. The researches started
at the section in Baranya county, where two new species were found
never known from the Dráva before, near Matty village. One individual
of the Alburnoides bipunctatus and the Neogobius fluviatilis were
found. The Cottus gobio and the Barbatula barbatula also had been
caught near Révfalu, in Baranya county. The occuring of the Cottus
gobio was known from the river (MAJER, 1998), but the selfsupporting
population of this species only known from the Szigetköz. That species
was found near Barcs too. The Barbatula barbatula was not found before
in the Hungarian section of the river Dráva. The Zingel streber was
found in the river Mura, which also was not known from the Hungarian
section of this river. Occuring of fifty species was proved from the
river Mura, untill that time. The resoults were published in the journal
Researches were done in the Kiskunsag National Park too. The occuring
of the Umbra crameri was successfully proved from more new places.
Our database based on archive datas had to be developed, so we had
7000 records filled up untill that time. The collection of the archive
We would like to thank the help with the developing of the database
