Geographic distribution

Gizani inhabits most of the streams, springs and small water reservoirs of Rhodes island.
In the past, gizani populations were recorded in the streams of Loutanis, Gadouras and Argiros, at the area of Psinthos (Pelemonis river system), in an artificial water reservoir at Agia Eleoussa village, in the area of Asklipion village (Kontaris stream), in the lake of Nani, as well as in the artificial lake Apolakkia and inflowing streams.

New data (collected during the gizani LIFE-Nature project), showed that the fish is extinct in lake Nani, while it doesn't occur in the artificial lake of Apolakkia and in the Platis and Asklipios streams.

Gizani presence was confirmed in all the rest of the water systems mentioned above. Furthermore, populations not previously recorded, were discovered in the streams of Chas, Makaris, Lardos (in the eastern part of the island), Kremastinos and Paradisiotis (in the western part). Translocation of gizani from Loutanis and Gadouras streams to two water reservoirs of Atsaka area was also recorded.
