The last Wild season was characterized by constant rainfall throughout the Amazon. In about 2 months we had 5 days without rain. If last year the rivers dropped to a level almost never seen before, leaving areas of the Amazon impossible to navigate due to sandbanks and drought, this year the opposite happened. By the time the river started going down to levels that would allow the collection of Wild discus the rains were constant. When it rains the river, lakes and streams run off dirty water and it becomes impossible for fishermen to fish. This is in addition to the strong storms that occur during this period.
So I can say that in the Santarem area we got few good fish and much less than we really wanted but that's mother nature. On the other hand many communities still refuse to sell fish because of thefts in the past where some exporters passed through these places and did not pay for the fish they took. This is something that we condemn, but it is a common occurrence. The exploitation of these riverside people ...to sad !!
From the images we can see some of the Wild Discus that we selected and their characteristicsThey are fish that had just been selected so their state with missing fins as usual . But today they are recovering and in less than 3 weeks they are fully recovered and eating Tropical pellets and flakes .In the next days we will bring you more details about our season 2021/2022 in the Amazon
