Among the various species found in the Amazon Basin, four stand out in the Rio Negro and tributary fisheries. The peacock bass is the most coveted, due to its incredible sportiness. The giant piraiba and pirarara are also part of the select list. In addition to the dreamed pirarucu, the largest of all the river scale fish. The sportive aruanã and specimens of cachara, apaiari, traíra, apapá, saicanga, palmito, black piranha and jacundá can also be fished in the region.
The largest scale river fish in the world, the pirarucu is one of the most coveted trophies in sport fishing. The red-tailed giant can reach 3 meters and go over 150 kilos, providing a real tug of war with the angler. A long and tiring struggle to catch it and, of course, to release it. Pirarucu lives in lagoons and fishing requires a lot of patience and technique.
