Abstract

Mainstream dams in the middle and lower reaches of the Lower Mekong Basin could affect more than 70 percent of the basin's catch. If such projects go ahead, experts agree that it would be better to build mainstream dams further upstream or relocate them to tributaries where they will have less impact on the dozens of fish species migrating over long distances.
