Chirostoma estor is one of the most important speciess in its natural habitat (Patzcuaro lake), because for its historical, economic and commercial value. The high demand and market price have led to a great overexploitation causing a decrease in its natural populations placing it in a state of vulnerability. Because of its the importance and the interest of various governmental and educational institutions, nowadays there are many researches of different aspects as taxonomic, descriptive, food, temperature and salinity effects, based on the above, it has been possible to conclude the life cycle in captivity, however it has not been possible to establish a manual of good practices of cultivation that allows to recover the population and to diminish the exploitation of the resource in its habitat. The present report has been prepared with available information on its different aspects that facilitates the knowledge, importance and identification of the same.
