Abstract

Acute thermal and asphyxia exposure risks for freshwater fish occupying three tropical wetland typologies were examined. Field water‐quality data revealed that fish in wetlands grazed by pigs had the highest exposure risks, because they are shallow and heavily damaged by pig activities. In contrast, with the exception is dissolved oxygen (which still reached critical conditions because of aquatic vegetation respiration), deeper permanent and pig‐managed wetlands provides the best opportunity for the same fish species to survive in a heavily pig‐modified tropical landscape.
