La National Geographic hizo una excelente nota sobre los peces más grandes del planeta y dónde está ubicado cada uno.
Over the past few decades, National Geographic Explorer and biologist Zeb Hogan has travelled far and wide in search of the world’s biggest fish. The search has focused on rivers that are both understudied and at high risk of ecological damage from dams, overfishing, mines, and other manmade threats.
“The race to study and save these megafish has never been more urgent,” says Hogan. More than 70 percent of the world’s freshwater megafish are at risk of extinction, he notes. The Chinese paddlefish may already be gone.
Hogan points to a study from Science which found that plans for recent dam projects around the world underestimated the damage to fish habitats and overstated the environmental benefits of the power.
