Abstract
The Corumbá Reservoir is located in Corumbá River, a tributary to the right bank of Paranaíba River, upper Paraná River basin. Fish were collected monthly, from March 1996 to February 2000, in 17 sampling stations along Corumbá Reservoir and its influence area, using gill nets, casting nets, electrofishing and long lines. Considering the entire period, 119 fish species were colleted, which belong to seven Orders, 26 Families, and 78 Genera. Among them, five species are considered endemic to Corumbá River basin, and 17 are probably new to the science.
