Goliath catfish in critical danger of extinction in the Bolivian Amazon !!!
In an article which will be published soon in the ¨Revista Boliviana de Ecología y Conservación Ambiental¨ seven bolivian ichthyologists, supported by WWF, evaluated the current conservation status of the goliath catfish (Brachyplatystoma rousseauxii) in Bolivia. They propose uploading the dorado at national level to the UICN-category ¨IN CRITICAL DANGER (CR)¨. This means, according to UICN (2018) that ¨the species is facing an extremely high extinction risk in its natural state¨. Coordinated action will be necessary to save this species from disappearing in Bolivia.Share on facebook
