The construction and further use of reservoirs have become a leading factor of alien species introduction and distribution in the Ob-Irtysh basin. In the Novosibirsk Reservoir, the fauna of alien species is represented by five species, three of which (Gmelinoides fasciatus Steb., Micruropus possolskii Sowinsky and Neomysis intermedia (Czerniavsky)) were deliberately introduced to increase the reservoir's forage base, whereas the rest two (Viviparus viviparus (L.) and Astacus leptodactylus Eschscholtz) appeared as a result of unintentional introductions. The history of penetration and naturalization of each species was traced, the ecological factors of their habitation were analyzed, and their current spatial distribution were studied. Despite low species richness, the alien species dominate in the formation of the bottom communities of the reservoir.
