From an evolutionary point of view, Amazonian fish species come from an ancient line of groups that had already been established near 60 millions of years (that have changed little since this time). The most accepted theory about the existence of most species of Amazon is that their precursors evolved during a period in what is now South America, Africa, South Asia and Australia were a single continent called Gondwana. After separation of these continents, these ancestors then evolved independently. Nowadays, although the rest of this relationship between the Amazon, fish from Africa and Australia is still evident, their modern descendants have diversified into thousands of endemic species.
Most Amazonian fish belong to only three large groups (families): catfish ( Siluriformes ), characins (Freshwater Dorado for example) and cichlids (tucunaré). In addition to these there are other couples like the oddball Osteoglossidae (as the immense pirarucú), as well as groups with origins saltwater, as the Sardinata / Apapa, a sábalo / herring / chad-like fish and sea bass, which it is basically a freshwater drum.
