Mitigation of the Impacts of Dams on Fisheries: A Primer

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.

Photos of Common Fishes in the Lower Mekong Basin

This document is the updated photo book of existing fish species that can be found in the Mekong River. It has been developed in close collaboration with the MRC Former Fisheries Programme and the corresponding national line agencies. All fishes are presented in the four national languages making it useful for every stakeholder. The book will act as a tool for local fishermen to generate standardised fish catch records across the MRC Member Countries and contribute to nationally and regionally harmonised datasets.
