Abstract
Although many studies have been made on fish community changes in reservoirs, the diversity of situations means that general models are still difficult to construct. In order to be useful to managers, the information gathered in these studies must cover the regional taxonomic peculiarities. The inclusion of ecological strategies allows the detection of general patterns of fish community change. In the present study, multivariate analyses and non-parametric tests were used in order to detect relationships between ecological traits of 39 fish species and pelagic fish assemblages. We used gillnet captures of fish made in the Sinnamary River before filling of the Pe...
