Abstract
First paragraph: The Atherinopsid silverside (Chirostoma estor estor Jordan, 1879) is a native freshwater species from the Central Mexican Plate. It is the principal species in an artisanal fishery in Lake Pátzcuaro, one of the altiplano lakes of Central Mexico, where for many years it has been the basis of the subsistence of the riparian P'urépecha Indian people. It has a high market demand and a high commercial value and so is an important income source in the region. However, problems like pollution, introduction of exotic species and overfishing have caused it to become an endangered species.
