The Holocene occurrence of the European catfish (Silurus glanis) in Belgium: the archaeozoological evidence

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 139(1):70-78.

An overview is given of the skeletal remains of the European catfish Silurus glanis found thus far in Belgian archaeological sites. These finds demonstrate that the species is autochthonous and allow documenting its occurrence and disappearance during the Holocene in the Scheldt and Meuse basins Possible causes for the local extinction of this catfish are discussed.
