From about 120 to 59 species, after 5 years of damming (Jutagate et al. 2001). The common fish species in the area were the sedentary species. Moreover, in terms of fishery production, the reductions in a fishery yield of about 5 kg haÀ1 was less about twofold before damming (about 10 kg haÀ1) and less too far from the amount expected by the EIA study (more than 50 kg haÀ1). There were very few number of the long migratory fish found in the upstream area, although there is the fish ladder attached to the dam (Roberts 2001; Jutagate et al.
2009a, b). The Chinese Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) annual reports (MEP 2008) show that pollution burdens in parts of the Yangtze have increased in recent years, especially in the lower course and in smaller tributaries (Xue et al. 2008). Only 31 % of water samples, mainly from the upper Yangtze, are of class I or II quality, which can be for drinking water sources, and much of the lower Yangtze water is Class III or poorer, which cannot be for drinking water sources. There is, however, evidence of improvements in some localities due to enhanced treatment of industrial wastewater (MEP 2008).
