Construction of the Aswan High Dam in Egypt, and subsequent cessation (since 1965) of surplus Nile Flood water (ca 35 billion m3 of water annually) from discharging into the Mediterranean Sea, has had an impact on marine life in coastal waters adjoining the Nile Delta and on brackish-water life in the lakes. Nutrient concentrations have fallen considerably in these waters; phytoplankton blooms associated with the Nile Flood have disappeared and, consequently, Sardinella catches have dropped…

Dam-building across naturally flowing rivers tends to decrease discharge of surplus water into the sea, reduce nutrient concentration in estuaries and coastal waters, and diminish plankton blooms as
Habitat loss due to dam development may affect the distribution of marine‐associated fishes in Gabon, Africa
The planned construction of 38 hydropower dams will impact the fish species inhabiting freshwater ecosystems in the megadiverse African country of Gabon. Many of Gabon’s most culturally and
Effect of the Aswan High Dam on the Nile flood and on the estuarine and coastal circulation pattern along the Mediterranean Egyptian coast
From 60–180 million tons of sediments and 18 ✕ 109 to 55 ✕ 109 m3 of water were transported to the Mediterranean Sea by the Nile annually before the Aswan High Dam was erected in 1964. Before
Phytoplankton Ecology Along the Egyptian Northern Lakes: Status, Pressures and Impacts
The northern lakes, particularly the delta ones (Manzala, Burullus, Edku and Mariout), were among the richest and most diverse ecosystems in Egypt 40 years ago. They are the important natural

Productivity of the South Eastern Mediterranean
The biological productivity of the south-eastern Mediterranean has been greatly reduced after the erection of the Aswan High Dam (completed in 1965) and the abrupt curtailment of the seasonal
