Ichthyoplankton and fishery data as basic information for hydropower planning on Juruena River basin

Artigo apresentado e publicado nos Anais do Simpósio Internacional de Transposição de peixes da América do Sul, 2012.

Resumo: We conclude that the sampled area is used as passage route by fish eggs and larvae, as well as presents fish spawning sites. Thus, through a low-cost and rapid research, it was possible to obtain high-quality regional information on migratory fishes in the middle-low Juruena river basin, a rare initiative to anticipate environmental issues that are usually dealt with later on, under projects’ licensing processes.
