Help Save the Cyprus Killifish

Aphanius Killifish Akrotiri Cyprus

The Mediterranean Killifish Aphanius fasciatus is known from just three locations on the island of Cyprus, the third was only discovered in late 2015 during a Freshwater Life Project investigation led by founder Chris Englezou. All three known populations of Aphanius in Cyprus are at risk from habitat degradation, waste dumping, construction and development projects, invasive species introductions, water extraction and pollution.
