Effects of the Gezhouba dam on fish diversity are exemplified by the Acipenseriformes. There are two sturgeons (Chinese sturgeon A. sinensis and Dabry’s sturgeon A. dabryanus) and one paddlefish (Chinese paddlefish P. gladius) in the Yangtze River. Spawning migrations of the anadromous Chinese sturgeon were blocked by the Gezhouba Dam. The abundance of the species has greatly declined, despite the re-established spawning habitat below the Gezhouba Dam (Wei et al. 1997). Recent evidence suggests that P.
Higher during the opening phase. Moreover, salinity in the estuary significantly declined, but significantly increased in the river during the opening phase (Jutagate et al. 2010). , and Mystus gulio contributed more to the catches in the freshwater area. However, none freshwater fish species was common in the estuarine/marine area (Jutagate et al. 2010, 2011). Meanwhile, the performance of the fish ladder at the dam site is poor due to the inappropriate design, which few species can utilize the ladder to move between the two systems (Rattanavinitkul et al.
