Ornamental fishes of the Peruvian Amazon

Post by bekateen »

As usual, in a work of this scale, there are obvious misidentifications when comparing the photos shown to the species described, but still worthwhile as a resource.

Abstract
El libro profundiza en el conocimiento de 212 especies de peces ornamentales que habitan las aguas de la Amazonia peruana. Para cada una de ellas, no solo se abordan los aspectos taxonómicos, ecológicos y biológicos, sino que también se especifican las zonas geográficas donde fueron registradas, así como los datos de comercialización, nacional e internacional del 2000 al 2017. Se espera que el conocimiento de la biología, ecología, sistemática y genética de las especies amazónicas en las que se focaliza este libro, contribuyan al desarrollo de una verdadera política de manejo sostenido de las especies, incluyendo la protección de los ecosistemas amazónicos. Esto posibilitaría que en el futuro las limitaciones o prohibiciones de colectas de peces ornamentales en su medio natural sean compensadas con el desarrollo de una piscicultura ornamental sostenible.

This is neat!

Though I'm seeing some terminology I'm unfamiliar with and which google isn't very helpful. Anyone have a description for what sort of river feature "gramalotes" are?
