Over 275 fish species worldwide eat fruit at some point in their lives. Fruit that fall from riparian and floodplain forests are an important energy source for fishes. In the process of eating fruit, these frugivorous fishes transport seeds and plant new trees.


    Fishes, like other wildlife, play important roles in aquatic ecosystems. Our mission is to investigate and raise awareness about the ecological role of frugivorous fishes in planting forests and contributing to the maintenance of biodiversity in tropical wetlands.
