Hortle, K.G. and So Nam (2017) Mitigation of the impacts of dams on fisheries — A Primer. Mekong Development Series No. 7. Mekong River Commission, Vientiane Lao PDR. 86 pages. ISSN: 1680-4023.

Thousands of dams have been built in the Mekong Basin, mainly for irrigation, water supply, and/or hydropower, with many more projects planned. Dams obstruct watercourses, alter flow patterns, and change aquatic environments, which can cause various negative impacts on fisheries and the millions of people who depend upon them. This report summarises the main impacts of dams and some approaches to mitigating negative impacts on fisheries.
