The Madeira River Valley Ichthyology and Fisheries Management Laboratory (LIOP)

LIOP/UFAM was created on December 19, 2012, based on demands from the Ministry of the Environment – MMA, based on the Growth Acceleration Program – PACs, mainly through the project STUDY AND MONITORING OF TEMPORAL VARIATION OF FISH FAUNA IN THE BASIN FROM THE ROOSEVELT RIVER – CAMPOS AMAZÔNICOS NATIONAL PARK (PNCA). This laboratory works from the perspective of territorial planning as a tool for managing natural resources, using micro and meso-scale basin units for the conservation of aquatic ecosystems and the development of socio-environmental activities. LIOP works with five basic prerogatives of conservation and maintenance of fishing stocks and guarantees of fishing activity, conservation of aquatic and forest ecosystems, understanding that there is an interdependence between these, and the valorization of social capital, through continued training with the empowerment of bases so that they can lead and participate in discussions and decision-making in a more qualified way. Working mainly on thematic axes and biological collections.
LIOP has a multidisciplinary team of biologists, environmental engineers, forestry engineers, biomedical scientists, agronomists, but is open to other areas of knowledge, such as social and human areas, as it is understood that the diversity of knowledge allows for a greater process capillarization and dissemination of information.
LIOP currently has 14 scholarship holders linked to developed and/or ongoing projects, including:
The Use of Strategic Tools for Territorial Planning and Resource Management FLONA Humaitá – closed;
