Author(s): B Laxmappa, C Nagaraju, M Sreedhar Sharma

Abstract: Mozambique tilapia, Oreochromis mossambicus (Peters, 1852) is a highly successful invader of aquatic ecosystems due to its adaptable life history and has formed a feral population in the irrigational tanks of Mahabubnagar district in India. The study was carried out from March 2013 to June 2015. Documentation of this species in irrigational tanks in the district is scanty. The paper describes occurrence and impact of Oreochromis mossambicus on commercially important cultured carp species in the Veeranna tank. The present account is an attempt to document the occurrence and abundance of this feral fish in Veeranna tank of Tatikonda village in Mahabubnagar district of Telangana state, India.
