Purpose: Understand the spatial dynamics of productivity and exploitation of aquatic vertebrates – including fish and reptiles – along the Rio Juru, a major tributary of the Amazon river, and create a spatially-explicit set of management guidelines to protect the landscape-scale sustainability of inland fisheries that can be feasibly enforced by local resource users. This will be based on community-based “fishing agreements” over an access-rights zoning system defining a spatio-temporal harvesting mosaic of commercial and subsistence fisheries including no-take areas (i.e. subsistence-only and strictly protected oxbow lakes). This will lead to measurable protein-acquisition benefits to small-scale artisanal fishermen resulting from population recovery of harvest-sensitive stocks.
