  • Edad de la trucha arco iris (Salmo gairdneri) de la laguna Zeta (Prov.de Chubut)

    Guerrero, C.A.; Lafarga, A. (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo PesqueroMar del Plata, Argentina, 1986)
    Age of a population of rainbow trout (Salmo gairdneri) from a pond in Patagonia was studied by means of scale readings. The population was sampled three times, on December 1984, March 1985 and March 1986. Length at age was back-calculated from growth marks on scales, using the Fraser-Lee equation. By the analysis of length distributions and numbers of marks on scales from each sample, it was concluded that this population was formed by a single cohort, born in spring 1982 and stocked shortly after. Stocking rate is unknown. Significant differences (P0.05) were found between back-calculations of length at age 1 from samples of December 1984 and March 1986. These differences were probably due to length-scale radius relation. Evidences from scales suggested that a single mark is formed each year, during early-mid spring. On the other hand, according to availabe data from the literature for the same species, this population has presented one of the highest growth rates. (pdf contains 15 pages)
  • Factores que afectan la distribución de salmónidos en Argentina

    Quirós, R. (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo PesqueroMar del Plata, 1991)
    The introductions of salmonids in Argentina can be considered as successfull. The have become established as reproducing populations in southern and middle-western lakes and reservoirs. An extensive sampling programme on 112 lakes and reservoirs was carried out during the summers of 1984 to 1987. Environmental features that determine their present distribution were analyzed. The hypothesis, which we used as starting-point, is that it has been attempted to introduce at least once and least one species of salmonids in all lakes and reservoirs of Argentina.

  • Evaluación del rendimiento pesquero potencial de la República Argentina: III. Edad y crecimiento de peces 1

    Guerrero, C.A.; Lafarga, A.; Cataldo, D.H.; Quirós, R. (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo PesqueroMar del Plata, 1990)
    Age and growth of populations of three fish species from sixteen lakes and reservoirs situated in the Patagonian Andean and the Patagonian Plateau Region (Argentina) were studied. They included two native species, the Patagonian smallmouth perch. (Percichthys trucha) and the Patagonian silverside (Patagonina hatcheri) and the introduced rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). For the three species backcalculated lenght at age was obtained from scale readings. Von Bertalanffy growth curves were usually adjusted to data. For the three species, faster growth was related with lake productivity. (Document contains 38 pages.)

    A limnological and fish survey program was developed on 110 lakes and reservoirs of Argentina during the summers of 1984 to 1987. Here we exclude lakes without fish. Lakes and reservoirs were visited once each, except for six situated in Chubut Province that were studied seasonally over the course of two years. Here we present raw data used to evaluate the potential fish yield of Argentinian lakes and reservoirs. (Document contains 56 pages.)
  • Trabajos de marcación de peces en el Río de la Plata

    Candia, C.R. (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo PesqueroMar del Plata, 1989)
    Sampling sites were located at: 1) a coastal area on Buenos Aires harbour where high concentrations of "sábalo" occur year round and which on account of its importance merits a specific program itself; 2) a coastal fringe from Buenos Aires harbour to Quilmes (34° 10' - 58° 10') and 3) different stations within the inner zone of the river, which were covered through a tagging campaign performed as part of an agreement among INIDEP-Argentina, CARP-Argentina, Uruguay, INAPE-Uruguay. At present (Winter 1989) recaptures from the first seven species have been obtained, with a total recovery of 3.81 o/o the highest percentages corresponding to patí, boga, armado and sábalo.

  • Evaluación del rendimiento pesquero potencial de la República Argentina: II. Evaluación por regiones

    Quirós, R. (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo PesqueroMar del Plata, 1988)
    A limnological and fish survey program was developed in 110 lakes and reservoirs of Argentina during the summers of 1984 to 1987. Lakes and reservoirs were visited once, except for six situated in the Chubut Province that were studied seasonally over the course of two years. The sampling surveys were performed by the "Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo Pesquero" and the "Provincia de Chubut". Here we present preliminary results of potential fish yield assessment on a regional basis, using empirical models. (Document contains 11 pages.)

  • Esclusas de peces en la represa de Salto Grande. Consideraciones acerca de su funcionamiento

    Delfino, R.; Baigún, C.R.M.; Quirós, R. (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo PesqueroMar del Plata, Argentina, 1986)
    Fishlocks at Salto Grande Reservoir. Considerations about its functioning. The Salto Grande dam, has in its structure two Borland type fishlocks. The fish passage efficiency is low, and it is limited by the original system design, the management of the dam and the Uruguay river hidrology. Thus, in the 1984-1986 period, on annual average, the fishlocks were out of service 53 o/o of the time, while in the two periods when higher observed fish accumulation occur, march-april and september-october, the passages were closed 72 o/o and 54 o/o of the time, respectively.

  • Mapas batimétricos y parámetros morfométricos de lagos patagónicos de Neuquén, de Río Negro y del Chubut (Argentina)

    Quirós, R. (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo PesqueroMar del Plata, Argentina, 1988)
    A limnological and fish survey program was developed on 112 lakes and reservoirs of Argentina during the summers of 1984 to 1987. Bathymetric surveys with a SIMRAD Skipper 411 model echosounder and line and lead were conducted on more than 40 lakes. This report presents bathymetric maps for seventeen lakes and reservoirs situated in Patagonian Andes Region and Patagonian Plateau betweem 38°53'S and 45°30'S. The bathymetric maps for two reservoirs were made from topographic maps before impoundment. Hypsographic and depth-area curves, and some morphometric parameters are presented for twenty one Patagonian lakes. Mean depth ranged from 2.0 to 111 m. The deepest lakes are situated in Patagonian Andes Region. Colhue Huapi Lake on Patagonian Plateau, is very shallow, having a mean depth of 2.0 m and being 810 km. in surface area.
  • Introducción de peces exóticos en la República Argentina

    Baigún, C.R.M.; Quirós, R. (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo PesqueroMar del Plata, Argentina, 1985)
    A review and analysis of the exotic fish distribution and introduction is made using bibliographic information. Both lentic and lotic environments were considered. In order to classify the state of the populations, different categories were defined as follow: permanent, probably permanent, reported and unknown. Results show that 15 species were attempted to be introduced from 1904. Only 8 of them arose an successfull aclimatization: raimbow trout, brown trout, lake trout, landlocked salmon, carp, goldfish, and mosquitofish. For the salmonids, ecological features were analized, in order to explain the disappearence or the permanence in some regions. (Document contains 90 pages)
  • Niveles de nutrientes y pigmentos fotosintéticos en el Río de la Plata interior (55°-59°W 34°-36°S)

    Quirós, R.; Senone, H. (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo PesqueroMar del Plata, Argentina, 1985)
    The "Río de la Plata" River is one of the less studied systems of the basin with respect to its biological and ecological aspects. Twenty four and twenty seven surface stations were sample on September 22-23 and November 22-23, 1982, respectively. The section studied is part of the zone called inner "Río de la Plata" River. The discharge was 29.000 m3/s in September and 45.200 m3/s in November. Total phosphorus (PT), total organic nitrogen (NOT), chemical oxygen demad (COT) and total cholrophyll were measured. Dissolved oxygen (DO), turbidity (TURB), pH and electrical conductivity (K20) were also measured at the surface with a HORIBA U7 sensor on November 1982. PT was 72-208 mg/m3 and 66-205 mg/m3 in September and November repectively; the higher values were near the Argentinian coast and the outer zone. NOT was 33-106 µM and 49-117 µM and CHL was 1.4-5.8 mg/m3 and 1.3-9.4 mg/m3. TURB was between 44 and 240 NTU in November; the maximun value were obseved in the central zone. Steep K20 gradients were found near both coast. The reduced organic carbon load into the lower and external part of the "Río de la Plata" River was estimated. (Document contains 40 pages.)
