Abstract

Piranhas are rare in the waters of Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. However, in January 2004, three people were attacked and wounded by fish in public swimming pools in the city of Salto (34°15’ S, 60°16’W), 270 km from the Paraná river. Probably responsible were Serrasalmus spilopleura, more than 20 specimens of which were caught in the pools.
