Abstract

Kintrishi River is one of the Adjaria’s Rivers which flows into the East coast of Black Sea. It is a middle size river with length about 45 km and basin square about 291 km2. In the upper part of Kintrishi River is Kintrishi Nature Reserve which was established in 1959 to preserve its unique flora and fauna and famous Colchian willow trees. Few years ago on the Kintrishi River upper Zeniti village has started building of Kintrishi Hydropower electric station (total power near 6,6 Mega Watts) with totally production till 40 Giga Watts per hour every year. The main aim of this work to demonstrate recent fish fauna community in Kintrishi River before it’s changing after the hydro construction. According to our study recent fish fauna of Kintrishi River consist on minimum 15 species of 6 families. Main part of them concentrated in the fluvio-lacustrine part of the river (near 20 km from mouth). There are no one specimens of Eudontomyzon mariae, Anguila anguila, Alburnus chalcoides, Capoeta sieboldii, Cyprinus carpio, Petroleuciscus borysthenicus and Oxynoemacheilus angorae were caught. According to data of local fisherman some fishes can migrate between adjacent rivers and sometimes, especially after severe floods Cyprinus carpio, Silurus glanis and Anguila anguila comes into the Kintrishi River.
