About this book

The Amazon has the richest freshwater fish fauna in the world, and its evolution is closely linked to the rainforest and the vast floating meadows of the floodplains. Fisheries illustrate the urgent need to look at the Amazon rainforest and its rivers as an ecosystem in view of current environmental changes. Proper management of the fisheries requires protecting flooded forests, floating meadows, headwater spawning areas, and other critical habitats.

With over 200 colour photos and illustrations, this book richly illustrates how the fishes and fisheries are part of the river-and-rainforest ecosystem and what needs to be done for their conservation.
