The periphytic algal community was dominated by Bacillariophyceae, Cyanophyceae and Zygophyceae.
The influence of the five abiotic variables (orthophosphate, total phosphorus, turbidity, ammonium, and total nitrogen) on the periphyton biomass (chlorophyll 'a', ash-free dry mass, classes biovolume: Cyanophyceae, Bacillariophyceae, Chlorophyceae, Euglenophyceae, Chrysophyceae, Oedogoniophyceae) was evaluated by the Canonical Correspondence Analysis (CCA), with significance by the Monte Carlo test (p < 0.
Based on quantitative data, 168 taxa were identified and distributed into the classes: Zygnemaphyceae (49 taxa), Baciliariophyceae (46), Chlorophyceae (29), Cyanophyceae (20), Euglenophyceae (13), Oedogoniophyceae (6), Xanthophyceae (4) and Rhodophyceae (1).
As demais classes que se sobressairam em numero de taxons foram Zygnemaphyceae, Chlorophyceae e Cyanophyceae, dependendo, entretanto, do local e da regiao em estudo (Tabela 2).
The fish consumed 27 food items, grouped into seven food categories: vegetal matter (leaves, roots, stalk and seeds), algae (Bacillariophyceae, Chlorophyceae, Cyanophyceae, Euglenophyceae, Oedogoniaceae, Zygnemaphyceae), detritus (organic and inorganic matter), fish (remains, scales, eggs and fingerlings), microcrustaceans (Cladocera, Copepoda, Rotifera, Ostracoda), macroinvertebrates (Hirudinea and Oligochaeta) and aquatic insects (Diptera and Coleoptera).

The dominant species is salt grass (Distichlis spicata and Distichlis scoparia) accompanied by Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon) and cyanophyceae algae (Nostoc sp.
