By Brian Harvey, Anton Baer, Joachim Carolsfeld, Carmen Ross

Fish species that migrate in the nice rivers of South the US aid vital neighborhood fisheries yet are little recognized outdoor their local variety. This publication, written specially for the realm financial institution and the foreign improvement study Centre, represents the 1st choice of medical specialists on those amazing fish. The authors hide the higher Parana, Paraguay-Parana, Uruguay and Sao Francisco basins in Brazil, in addition to the Brazilian and Colombian Amazon. They talk about not just the valuable migratory species and their attention-grabbing dating with the water cycle within the rivers and wetlands, but additionally the fisheries they aid, and their usually precarious conservation prestige.

Data on growth of migratory species in the Upper Paraná are limited to four species (P. lineatus, P. maculatus, R. vulpinus and R. aspera). Two further species (P. corruscans and S. maxillosus) were studied in other regions of the basin (Table 2). The maximum lengths registered for other species in the Upper Paraná are also listed in Table 2. P. luetkeni is the heaviest fish in the basin and may grow up to 150 kg. 4 P. mesopotamicus P. pirinampu P. maculatus P. lineatus P. corruscans P. granulosus R.
