Paraneetroplus bulleri Regan, 1905


Erstbeschreibung als Paraneetroplus bulleri:

  • Regan, Charles Tate. 1905. "A revision of the fishes of the American cichlid genus Cichlosoma and of the allied genera". Annals and Magazine of Natural History. (Ser. 7) vol. 16; pp 60-77; 225-243; 316-340; 433-445 (crc00042)

Artenschutz: Paraneetroplus bulleri wurde durch die Internationale Union für die Erhaltung der Natur (IUZN) in der Roten Liste bedrohter Arten bewertet als (LC) nicht gefährdet (2018). Paraneetroplus bulleri is not listed in the Mexican Official Norm NOM-059-ECOL-2001 or the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The habitat remains stable in its entire range.

There is however an important risk for this species; The seemingly unending deforestation of the northern Tehuantepec isthmus increases the silt on the rocks and the turbidity of the water in areas in which this fish inhabit, decreasing the amount of available food and creating a risk to this and other species.

For many years the plan to develop a major engineering project to establish a quick and cheap transportation route for items to and from the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans, through the Isthmus of Tehuantepec alternative to the Panama channel, has been threatening the incredibly rich ecosystem of the potentially affected area. The project would include railroads and a superhighway for the traffic of products, and would possibly bring ecologic affectation to the zone and possibly pollution as well, if as apparently it is the rule is not handled with care. It is likely that this project will materialize one day, but hopefully in a way that respects the incredibly rich flora and fauna of this wonderful place on earth.
