Among the 16 species caught, five are amphihaline migratory species (Alosa alosa, Alosa fallax, Mugil cephalus, Petromyzon marinus, Anguilla anguilla) and 11 exclusively freshwater species, 10 of which have been introduced as part of water body replanting programs.
The presence of Petromyzon marinus observed at the station AmoA (upstream of Aissi Wadi) and Rutilus rutilus--Alburnus alburnus, identified in two types of environments (Watercourse and dam), typical of watercourses in particular Aissi Wadi, can be interpreted as a residue of the species initially present in the rivers before the construction of the Taksebt dam.
