Revisão sistemática de literatura de Hyphessobrycon eques: suporte para melhoria da criação em cativeiro




Aquicultura, Peixe ornamental, Piscicultura.


Hyphessobrycon eques has great prominence in fishkeeping and scientific research. In this context, a systematic literature review was performed to assist with the improvement of captive breeding of this species and to verify knowledge gaps. Notably, of the 966 articles published between 1997 and 2020 that were found in the initial screening of the digital libraries of Google Scholar, PubMed, SciELO, Science Direct, and Scopus, only 56 represented research on the species according to the criteria established. Considering the aspects pertinent to captive reproduction, 25 studies were selected. These studies addressed information regarding reproduction; embryonic, larval, and juvenile development of the species; parasitic fauna; the limiting concentration of prophylactic agents; food preferences; and dietary supplements already used for these fish. As for the information gaps on the cultivation of the species, there are no studies related to nutrition that sought to determine their nutritional needs, including feeding frequencies, feeding durations, and specific amounts of food. Other development and health gaps are analyzed. Therefore, it was possible to offer greater support for the breeding of H. eques, by highlighting opportunities for new scientific studies to enrich and collaborate concerning the breeding of this ornamental fish.
