Description: Technical Note
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to quantify suckermouth catfish (Loricariidae) burrows in disturbed environments and to evaluate habitat factors associated with burrow densities. Burrows were sampled in central Florida, an area where sailfin catfishes (Loricariidae: Pterygoplichthys spp.) have long been established, but have been problematic only in recent years. Burrow densities were quantified for a variety of habitat types and were associated with substrate and shoreline characteristics.
