CARREIRA, Laura B.T.  and  SABBAG, Omar J.. Economic aspects of production of Caiman crocodilus yacare. An. Acad. Bras. Ciênc. [online]. 2015, vol.87, n.1, pp.495-502. ISSN 0001-3765.

The breeding of crocodilians is still a recent activity in Brazil. Its peak was in the 1990's, but it has gaps in its production, as there are no norms for the commercial breeding of these animals in captivity. However, its economic potential is great, and the search for ecological balance and viability of commercial production has become a challenge among farmers of this activity. Therefor, the objective of the study was to economically analyze the production of Caiman crocodilus yacareon a farm located in Caceres, state of Mato Grosso, identifying relevant items of costs in the activity, as well as the parameters related to the profitability and viability of the activity. The economic results for the breeding of this animal were positive, with profitability ratios higher than 70%.

Keywords : Caiman crocodilus yacare; costs; economic viability; herpetology; fitability.
