Amazon Peacock Bass

 Tour Code: AMA1   Length:  6 full fishing days  
     Offering unprecedented levels of services, facilities and comfort, we have been a pioneer in world-class Peacock Bass fishing since 1992.

     We know the standards American anglers have come to expect, and we have the experience, the local connections and the backcountry savvy to provide an unparalleled fishing adventure.

Our Ecologically Responsible Approach

     We are the only outfitter in Brazil that has legally obtained fishing permits for Indian reserves by negotiating in good faith with Brazilian governmental authorities

     These permits restrict potentially damaging commercial fishing, greatly benefitting the Indian tribes by preserving land, water courses and wildlife in these delicate ecosystems.

     We conduct our trips according to the "zero footprint" principle. Guests spend very little time in the actual rainforests; instead, they're either in the fishing boats or eating and resting in our floating cabins. Many of our products are biodegradable, and we carefully remove all garbage. Our goal is to leave no sign of our presence.

Preserving the Rainforest
Well aware of our conservationist role, River Plate has partnered with the Amazon counties to create 3.5 million acres in preservation parks within the river basins of the Marmelos, Matupiri, Itapera, and Shufari rivers. Between 1998 and 2003, we distributed the equivalent of 30 tons of food in some of these parks, in return for the curtailment of commercial fishing. We have also donated a great deal of money to pay for park wardens, and to build and maintain their outposts.
