Determinación de aspectos pesqueros y biología reproductiva de la carachama (familia loricaridae) en el caserío Higrompampa, región Huánuco


The objective of the study was to determine the fishing aspects and reproductive biology of carachama (Familia Loricaridae) in the Higrompampa Caserío, Huánuco region. Through interviews with the fishermen, it was decided to sample eight sectors known as Ex-puente dam, Chulla, Km 22, Quebrada Roseacu, Puente Huanipampa, Puente Chimao, Higrompampa and Santa Rita Sur that varied in altitude from 1,012 to 865 masl distributed in 14.5 km; The fishermen were interviewed and then they went out to capture the carachamas at night, in addition the water parameters have been measured. As a result, most fishermen choose to fish once a week, resorting to a greater extent to the Ex Puente Presa point, the fishing time is from 6 to 9 pm where there is no rain and preferably in Luna full; in Puente Chimao, a greater quantity of fish was captured. The Chulla, Puente Chimao and Santa Rita points presented higher population density with aggregate type distribution. The largest carachamas were captured in the Ex Puente Presa and with lesser morphological characteristics it was found in the Puente Chimao sector; In addition, there was a higher proportion of male fish in five sampling areas. It is concluded that, in the section studied, there are Loricarids that have very heterogeneous morphological characteristics and the reports in the study area are limited
