Aquaculture, or "fish farming" is a rapidly growing industry in several parts of the world. The Amazon Basin contains at least 2500 species of fish, making it well-suited for the aqualculture business. Of these fish, none is more ecologically spectacular or economically vital than the tambaqui. It is one of the best-tasting freshwater fish, and its tendency to eat fruits and seeds makes it a prime candidate for farming. The tambaqui offers promise as a healthy, environmentally friendly food source. This text presents a portrait of an Amazonian fish as it exists in its natural habitat. More than just biology, the book demonstrates how the tambaqui symbolizes the tight ecological link between rivers and rainforests.
