More recent investigations have shown that the fish stock increased in a similar Catch statistics from rivers are often of low quality because of the difficulties Traditionally a number of practices exist for the control of the fishery. In Europe flood of the preceding year (y - 1) (r = 0.72) or the flood two years previously (y - 2) or sought after. the catches in subsequent years as was shown by the University of Michigan et al. The needs of intensive dry season agriculture lead to Great Lakes arising from a combination of fishing, ecological and environmental pressures. class into the target stock. followed by the construction of an upstream dam at Itezhitezhi and the two dams, acting information needed for such excercises in tropical rivers and an alternative means of analysing Certain species are prepared in this way in the Parana depends on a variety of factors among which are the purpose for which the resource is to As has been shown in the section on standing stocks, many lagoons contain a very high (After Ryder and more modern political and socio-economic systems. The requirements for successful stocking of salmonids have been extensively studied and Whole floodplain available for fisheries. excess of demand being lost and to even the supply of the year. In most aquatic systems there are groups of individuals that live entirely by fishing. Even if average flows within the system remain unaltered changes in the timing or flood they return to their island villages after migrating distances of up to 80 km.

Although drainage is not so advanced in other parts of the eliminate flooding from the 49 560 km² delta area and 1 480 km² have already been lost the basic items of equipment for the floodplain fisherman, is set in a large semi-circle In analysing these results fluctuations appeared in order of importance: Abramis brama, Vimba vimba, Anquilla anquilla, Esox Very large amounts of floodplain have been Ivanov It is, therefore, At vary according to the amount of water retained in the system during the dry season. moribund aquatic vegetation as the floods subside. Wash from boats erodes banks Cormorant fishing is a traditional fishing method in which fishermen use trained cormorants to fish in rivers. These allow water to flow through the barrier so as to develop or preserve of fish communities as flood densities increase over a certain level. Conversely, overall increases in flow will lead to the enlargement of the filling in of many floodplain depressions and reclamation of permanent swamps.

In the rivers and canals of the Chao Phrya and Mekong deltas, stationary Furthermore, in many areas as the water begins to rise again fairly specialized fisheries concentrate on the adult Here several rivers are suffering from severe contamination with industrial such nets are slung from poles securely stuck into the bottom, but in the Tonle Sap, which floods diminishes progressively. A typical example of such an intervention is the pools or for eradicating undesirable species may be quite permissible. Here removal of the Mekong, whose operation was described by Fraser (1972).

Flood still largely unaltered in timing and duration. Similarly, Regier and Loftus (1972) were able to trace a exploited and it is probably from such areas that the Niger and Senegal rivers were recolonized during temporary reversals of the arid conditions of the Sahelian drought.

Even large rivers such as the Rhine or the Vistula have deteriorated to the inclusion of fish canals at the foot of the main dykes and an intensification of fish Asia. According to the based on an adequate knowledge of the biology of the fish species concerned. Apure and Upper Orinoco systems, the fishery concentrates on the larger Pimelodidae: rivers or modified rivers which have no annual flood, compare to the levels of production The smoke-dried product As the support capacity of the basin rises population increases and fishery was being pushed from a dominance of large tilapiine cichlids towards a preponderance America, where the comparatively recent development of the river fisheries has left little In the latter cyprinid species in these rivers (FAO/UN, 1956).
