Evaluating the limitations in assessment context for selecting the P. pardalis as species for aquaculture

Domestication of native species is essential to development aquaculture. However, complete information on criteria used to categorize fish native species is little available and scarce. The objective of this work is to perform narrative review, critically evaluating the problem to selection of amazonian armoured catfish named acari-bodó (Pterygoplichthys pardalis) as candidate species for aquaculture, assigning this fish species into three criteria (market; economic and biological) to apply multicriteria decision analysis methodology for multiple decision makers (fish farmers, researchers, government). The limitations in decision context and possibilities for domestication of the P. pardalis are discussed.
