Abstract

AGUDELO-ZAMORA, Henry D; OSPINA-PABON, Juan G  and  JIMENEZ-SEGURA, Luz F. SAN JUAN DE URABÁ RIVER FISH, CARIBBEAN COAST, COLOMBIA, SOUTH AMERICA. Bol. Cient. Mus. Hist. Nat. Univ. Caldas [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.2, pp.129-138. ISSN 0123-3068.

In this article fish samples from the San Juan de Urabá River deposited in national and international museums are reviewed, and based on this review and other published studies, the first list of San Juan de Urabá River fish is documented. To date the scientific knowledge of the ichthyofauna of this region continues to be very poor. The only study about the river was published in 1992 and was only focused on the coastal zone where 40 species were found. Bases in our revision of museum specimens, 38 species were identified in the basin, 15 from which were Perciformes, the most abundant order. The isolated basins act as individual systems that may contain unique biotas and also they are of great importance in a biogeographical context because they act as independent systems.

Keywords : actinopterygii; diversity; estuary; Antioquia; Caribbean Sea.
