“…The Basin of the Madeira River is one of the Amazonian ecosystems that has most suffered from the implantation of hydroelectric dams (Latrubesse et al 2017). As one of the principal tributaries of the Amazon River, the Madeira River play a fundamentally important role in the region's fisheries, with more than 1000 species recorded up to now (Ohara et al 2015), including a large number of recently described taxa (Bifi et al 2019). At least 57 of the fish species recorded in the Madeira Basin are commercially important for the region's fishing communities (Doria et al 2012).…”
