The flooded fields of Maranhão form an immense floodplain, variable according to the rainfall regime in the region, whose characteristics are conducive to the feeding, reproduction and growth of various species, with considerable commercial interest and with morphophysiological aspects that suggest a adaptability for feedlot fish production. Thus, this study aimed to elucidate the main species of siluriformes in the flooded fields of the plains of Maranhão with zootechnical potential. Through literary review, three catfish species of the order Siluriformes, Pimelodus blochii, Hemisorubim platyrhynchos and Trachelyopterus galeatus, whose size reached 25, 50 and 18 cm, respectively, were identified.

Keywords : Pisciculture, Siluriformes, Fish production, Zootechnics.
