“…Among the great catfishes, the Steindachneridion and Pseudoplatystoma genera occupy the top of the alimentary chain; present great load and migrate in at least a phase of the life (Miranda, 1997;Revaldaves et al, 2005). The genus Pimelodus has the greatest diversity in the Pimelodidae family, with 26 species distributed from Panama to Argentina, ranging from small to medium-size (Lundberg & Littmann, 2003;Ribeiro & Lucena, 2006a, 2006b. The genus Sorubim is distributed in hydrographic basins of the Amazon, Orinoco, Paraná and Paraíba Rivers (Froese & Pauly, 2002).…”
