Abstract

Perceived as an indicator of the balance in wildlife and clean nature, the Eurasian otter (Lutra lutra L.) is near-threatened due to the fact that its fur is valuable, the increase in environmental pollution, the decrease in wetlands, the rivers in their habitats are turned into channels. There are 86 rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) farms legally licensed by the Provincial Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry Muğla - Turkey. Since otter meets 70% of its nutrient need from fish, it is seen as a predatory species by aquaculture producers. For this reason, it is necessary to work on establishing otter habitats and breeding farms jointly with rainbow trout farmers in order to eliminate the negative effects of both rainbow trout farms and Eurasian otters. In this way, Eurasian otters that are near-threatened, will be saved and also a different contribution will be made to our economy.

Keywords: Otter, Rainbow trout, Otter breeding, Otter habitat
