Fishes of the flooded savannas of Paz de Ariporo, Meta River, Orinoco basin

Latest version published by Asociación Colombiana de Ictiólogos on Dec 1, 2017 Asociación Colombiana de Ictiólogos

Floodplains are strategic and poor known ecosystems, despite of his ecologic, biologic and economic significance. We characterized Fish community in floodplains in 13 stations and two climatic periods (ascending waters and descending waters), by the combination and standardization of different fishing arts. This dataset represents such characterization of the ichthyofauna of Paz de Ariporo, Meta River, Orinoco basin and different environmental variables measured.

Geographic Coverage

Our study site was located in Paz de Ariporo floodplains, at left side of Meta river and between lower Guachiría river and La Hermosa stream basins, Casanare department, Colombia. This area corresponds to alluvial and eolic floodplains, which undergo a sinking, process during Pleistocene caused by a fault on which Meta river flow currently (Mora-Fernández et al., 2013, Osorio-Peláez et al., 2015).

Sampling Methods

We characterized Fish community in floodplains in 13 stations and two climatic periods (ascending waters and descending waters), by the combination and standardization of different fishing arts and measure different environmental variables.

Study Extent Our study site was located in Paz de Ariporo floodplains, at left side of Meta river and between lower Guachiría river and La Hermosa stream basins, Casanare department, Colombia (Fig. 1). This area corresponds to alluvial and eolic floodplains, which undergo a sinking, process during Pleistocene caused by a fault on which Meta river flow currently (Mora-Fernández et al., 2013, Osorio-Peláez et al., 2015).

Method step description:

  1. Standardized samples were applied for both periods and study sites (Fig. 1): sampling included a 100 m transect, making five passes of a fence (7 m long, 2 m high and 0.1 cm mesh), 20 cast net shots (4 m diameter and 2.5 cm mesh) and fishing with hooks for three hours (hooks and lines of different sizes and types of bait). Two "stationary" gillnets (23 m long, 2 m high and 5 cm mesh) were used for 4 hours, and were revised every hour. After captured, fish were fixed in 10% formalin, and then transferred to 70% ethanol. The taxonomic list follows the classification system proposed by Reis et al. (2003) with recent modifications proposed by Oliveira et al. (2011) (characiform families), Thomaz et al. (2015) (Stevardiinae) and Betancur-R et al. (2016) (for osteichthyans in general), and valid species names were confirmed through queries on the Catalog of Fishes of the California Academy of Sciences (Eschmeyer et al., 2017). The species recorded were categorized as threatened (Mojica et al., 2012), migratory (Usma et al., 2013), endemic (DoNascimiento et al., 2017), and species subject of conservation (González et al., 2015).
  2. Before fish sampling, in a 100-meter transect, environmental variables (sustrate, submerged vegetation, riparian vegetation and stream morphology) were measured following the protocols established in Rankin (2006). In each site, parameters were taken in-situ such as: dissolved oxygen, water temperature, pH and conductivity with previously calibrated apparatus (Hanna HI 9811-5). Likewise, a representative water sample was taken according to standard protocols for the analysis of the following chemical parameters: total nitrogen, total coliforms, total phosphorus and total solids.
