Abstract
But undoubtedly changes will occur. In the future, irrigation schemes and hydro-electric projects will demand a certain measure of water control and such schemes probably will not tolerate any river obstructions such as kek. And the control of flooding will have serious effects on the migrations of river fishes and kek catches. Again the erection of barrages and subsidiary furrows will affect the breeding habits of the migratory fishes. Under such conditions the organization of these river fishing industries will be forced to develop along different lines. Thus the well-being, and perhaps survival, of the industry will depend as much on human as on biological factors.
