The structure of Cichla kelberi population was characterized regarding the sex ratio, total length composition and some reproductive characteristics. The specimens were collected in two periods, from November 2002 to November 2003 and from December 2004 to May 2006. The sex ratio was significantly different than 1:1. The total length varied from 3.4 to 40.1(More)
The introduction of allochthonous fish species happens constantly in large bodies of freshwater, like as the reservoirs of Paraná Basin, located in Brazilian southeast, representing a threat for local biodiversity. The fish species Plagioscion squamosissimus and Cichla ocellaris were introduced from the 1970s in several water bodies of this basin and had(More)
The composition, diversity and similarity of fish communities associated with macrophytes of two oxbow lakes of Mogi-Guaçu River, São Paulo State, Brazil, were evaluated in the wet and dry seasons of 1994–1995. Fish species composition and relative abundance values were similar for both lakes, despite their difference in connection time to the river and the(More)
The Ubatiba river is a coastal stream subject to stochastic spates all over the year and, Characidium sp.n. is among the twenty-two species that compose its ichthyofauna. In this study we analyse some traits of its reproductive biology and discuss whether the adopted strategy has causal relationship with the environmental variables. Specimens were collected(More)
This study describes at ultrastructural level the germ cells in the testis of matrinxã (Brycon cephalus) raised in captivity. The specimens 'matrinxã' were maintained in four breeding tanks of 200 m(2), at the Aquaculture Research Center at Vale do Ribeira-CEPAR, from Fishery Institute, in Pariquera-Açu City, São Paulo, Brazil. The samples were collected(More)
Oocyte development has been divided into 5 distinct stages in the reared matrinxã, Brycon cephalus, based on morphological criteria by light and transmission electron microscopy: I) chromatin-nucleolus; II) perinucleolar; III) cortical alveoli; IV) vitellogenesis; V) final maturation. In stages I and II (primary growth), oocytes reside in nests close to(More)
