The largest preserved areas of Atlantic Rainforest are located in the southern region of the State of São Paulo (Brazil). The rivers and streams existing in this region are home to a community of fish still hardly known, despite the intense activity of artisanal and sport fishing practiced. The present work aims to carry out ecological studies on the communities of fish, identifying the main fishing localities, in addition to gathering together the ethnobiological knowledge related to the fishing practiced by the local populations of sporting fishermen. There will also be suggestions of proposals for the management of fishing and ecological tourism to be applied in this region of the State of São Paulo. (AU)
