That's a beautiful Anjumara! Serious predator.
I was in Guyana Sth America this time last year and had the opportunity to land a few MALAs using a cast net in shallow dirt pools. The locals cleaned and cooked them, they are a terribly bony fish and are called "Huri", They also mentioned the Aimara by name which can be found upstream, I am the middle one in the second pic.
I did try it( and to think one of these fish cost about $100 in the UK!!) but the Hoppy is terribly bony, they survive for quite some time out of water and needless to say needs to be handled very cautiously even when they appear to be quite still, we caught quite a few smaller ones as well and they also put up a good fight. I have been told that they can crawl from one pond to another across dry land! South America is a great unspoilt place to visit to see fish like the aros, arapaimas, piranhas and wolves in their natural environment.Did you eat it? Taste nice??
Or taste like chicken?
I guess catching Aimara is a different ball game...
