Dams disrupt river ecosystems.
“Migratory fishes are fishes that swim either short or long distances daily, annually or longer, as a way to complete their life cycle, feed and/or make love! Some migratory fishes migrate up and down rivers, others between rivers and oceans, and others across entire oceans. Some migratory fish species you may know? Salmon migrate up rivers as adults to spawn in the same river they were born. On the flipside, freshwater eels are born in the ocean but migrate epic distances to carry out their lives in rivers. Bullsharks migrate up rivers and back through the oceans to breed and feed! And there are many more examples of migratory fishes!”
