This study investigated the environmental factors influencing the distribution of the endangered arapaima (Arapaima spp.) in floodplains of the Amazon. The abundance of arapaima was found to be positively related to the area and depth of the water column, and hence volume of lakes. Greater depth of water column also was related positively with the abundance and presence of arapaima in connecting channels. The abundance of arapaima was positively related to the connectivity of the lake with… CONTINUE READING
