Migratory Fishes of South America


2004. 24cm. Pp.372. Figures, maps & tables. Paperback.

Fish species that migrate within the great rivers of South America are important locally but are little known outside their native range.

Migratory Fishes of South America represents the first collection of the work of local scientific experts on these remarkable fish.

The authors cover the Upper Paraná, Paraguay-Paraná, Uruguay and São Francisco basins in Brazil, as well as the Brazilian and Colombian Amazon. They discuss not only the principal migratory species and their fascinating relationship with the water cycle in the rivers and wetlands, but also the fisheries they support, and their often precarious conservation status. Includes an appendix of migratory fish species in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
