Özet

The extinction process of the endemic inland fishes of Turkey, Alburnus akili (govce) and Pseudophoxinus handlirschi (kavinne) is studied. The assessment is based on the field studies and observations during the last two decades (1990-2010), along with a survey of the literature. The piscivorous effect of Sander lucioperca introduced into lakes Egirdir and Beysehir has been concluded to be the major factor in the disappearance of Pseudophoxinus handlirschi in the early 1970s and of Alburnus akili after 1985.
