Abstract

An environmental assessment of the Senegal River to determine the effects of an anti-salt (salt Barrier) dam and a flood control dam indicates that 10,000 metric tons of estuarine fishes and 12,000 metric tons of floodplain fishes will be lost annually, if both projects are implemented. Potential gains in impoundment fisheries will not replace lost production. Mitigation efforts could offset negative effects of project development.
