This is actually erroneous. The software used to create this document
apparently uses a character recognition system that, given the information
available, has confused Rivulus hartii with Rutilus rutilus (which is a
Cyprinid fish quite popular in angling, and was introduced to Ireland at the
right time and has spread widely in recent decades due to it being used for
Pike bait).
