             abstract = "This paper aims to describe the spatial-temporal variability in 
                         catch of the main fishery resources of the Amazon River and 
                         floodplain lakes of the Lower Amazon, as well as relating the 
                         Catch per Unit of Effort with anomalies of some of the Amazon 
                         River, atmosphere and Atlantic Ocean system variables, determining 
                         the influence of the environment on the Amazonian fishery 
                         resources. Finfish landings data from the towns and villages of 
                         the Lower Amazon for the fisheries of three sites (Obidos, 
                         Santarem and Monte Alegre), were obtained for the period between 
                         January 1993 and December 2004. Analysis of variance, detrended 
                         correspondence analysis, redundancy analysis and multiple 
                         regression techniques were used for the statistical analysis of 
                         the distinct time series. Fisheries production in the Lower Amazon 
                         presents differences between the Amazon River and the floodplain 
                         lakes. Production in the Amazon River is approximately half of the 
                         one of the floodplain lakes. This variability occurs both along 
                         the Lower Amazon River region (longitudinal gradient) and 
                         laterally (latitudinal gradient) for every fishing ground studied 
                         here. The distinct environmental variables alone or in association 
                         act differently on the fishery stocks and the success of catches 
                         in each fishery group studied here. Important variables are the 
                         flooding events; the soil the sea surface temperatures; the 
                         humidity; the wind and the occurence of El Nino-Southern 
                         Oscillation events. Fishery productivity presents a large 
                         difference in quantity and distribution patterns between the river 
                         and floodplain lakes. This variability occurs in the region of the 
                         Lower Amazon as well as laterally for each fishery group studied, 
                         being dependent on the ecological characteristics and life 
                         strategies of each fish group considered here.",
