During 60s and 70s, several fish species were introduced for aquaculture in Dominican Republic. These include, largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides), common carp (Cyprinus carpio), three tilapia species (Oreochromis niloticus, O. plateada and O. rendalli), and crawfish (Procambarus clarke).  The photo shows largemouth bass.
