Aim: This study aimed to evaluate influence of hydrological variation, ontogeny and interspecific variation in the feeding activity and diet composition for P. nattereri and S. marginatus in floodplain of Negro River, South Pantanal. Methods: The samples were taken with the use of gillnets and cast nets of different sizes, from October/2005 to August/2008.(More)
This study defined some population parameters for growth of the Red-bellied Piranha (Pygocentrus nattereri) in the Pantanal, based on the bimonthly length-frequency distribution of individuals in samples taken from October 2005 through August 2008 in the Negro River. The samples were taken by means of gill nets and cast nets, with meshes of 1.5–8 cm between(More)
During the study of metazoan parasites of freshwater fish in the Pantanal wetland (state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil), third-stage larvae of Brevimulticaecum sp. were collected from the abdominal cavity, liver parenchyma, mesentery, skeletal muscles and stomach wall of the following species: Gymnotus inaequilabiatus, Hemisorubim platyrhynchos, Hoplias(More)
In the period of October 2007 to August 2008, 152 specimens of Pygocentrus nattereri were caught in the Negro River in the Nhecolândia region, central Pantanal wetland, State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. The specimens were necropsied and a total of 4,212 metazoan endoparasites were recovered, belonging to 10 taxons: Procamallanus (Spirocamallanus)(More)
In order to inventory the metazoan endoparasites of Serrasalmus marginatus, 91 specimens were examined. They were captured in the Negro River in Pantanal wetland, State of Mato Grosso do Sul, Central-Western Brazil, from October 2007 to August 2008. Parasites of six taxa were recovered: Procamallanus (Spirocamallanus) inopinatus, Contracaecum sp.(More)
