Abstract: We evaluated the effect of light intensity on survival rate and zootechnical performance in matrinxã larvae (Brycon amazonicus) that is an important species for fish farming in the Amazon region. For this, the larvae were submitted to three experimental stages: Stage I—10–72 hr after hatching (HAH), Stage II—72–168 HAH and Stage III—168–288 HAH. The animals were submitted to three treatments of different light intensities: low (±20 lx), intermediate (±200 lx) and high (±2,000 lx). The low light intensity increased the survival rate in 24, 48, 72, 120, 168 and 288 HAH. The size of the animals was homogeneous in 72 and 168 HAH in the low and intermediate treatments. The high light intensity increased the zootechnical parameters in 288 HAH. We suggest the use of low light intensity in the initial periods of observation (24 and 48 HAH) to reduce aggressiveness and increase the survival and homogeneity of the animals. On the other hand, it is possible to suggest an increase in the light intensity in the final period of observation (288 HAH), as the increase in intensity stimulated growth and affected the survival rate of the matrinxã larvae. © 2019 John Wiley & Sons Ltd
