Leandro Sousa



Leandro Sousa from Altamira, Brazil. Leandro is an ichthyologist and Professor of Biology at the Universidade Federal do Pará (UFPA), right in front of the Xingu rapids, and is doing extensive field trips with local fishermen to try to understand the amazing loricariid diversity found in this place. He uses scuba diving in the depths of the Xingu to study and register the fishes, the rocks they live in and the way the fishermen catch them. Since 2014 he coordinates a Conservational Breeding Project of Xingu Endemic species at the University (ictioxingu), focused mainly in Hypancistrus zebra and other Loricariidae.
