Helminths of freshwater fishes in the reservoir of the Hydroelectric Power Station of Itaipu, Paraná, Brazil
This study presents results from several expeditions in 1985, 1991-1995 and 2003 to the Medium Parana River in the section that begins below the Itaipu Dam and ends at the trinational border ofExpand
Laboratory-reared larvae of Limnoperna fortunei (Dunker) were monitored until the morula stage at 268C, and from there on until settlement at 20, 25 and 288C, whereupon implications for the dispersion of the species and for its fouling impact are discussed. Expand
Implementation of aquaculture parks in Federal Government waters in Brazil
The Brazilian Government has been promoting studies on the zoning and demarcation of aquaculture parks dedicated to the production of fish in net-cages in the large public reservoirs of the country.Expand
The effect of water temperature and feeding rate on the growth rate of pacu (Piaractus mesopotamicus) raised in cages
Both water temperature and feeding rates resulted in significant differences in the growth rate of juvenile pacu, and this study found that fish born on the same practical diet at three different feeding rates had different growth rates. Expand
The fish ladder at the itaipu binational hydroelectric complex on the paraná river, Brazil
The results show that some species of fish can ascend the ladder at the ITAIPU dam during the migratory period; the dam is non-selective with respect to species, but selective with Respect to fish size as a result of the presence of reduced openings. Expand
Selection of sites for establishing aquaculture parks, and estimation of fish production carrying capacity, for a tropical reservoir in South America
Actions facilitating the reconciliation of multiple uses of a reservoir with electric power generation should be implemented so as to avoid conflicts and support the best development of the waterExpand
