Fish communities of a fourth order stream impounded by a weir were studied in Southern Nigeria. Fifty-eight species were recorded of which 90% occurred upstream while reservoir and downstream accounted for 48% and 43% respectively. The distribution of some fish families indicated the effects of habitat alterations caused by reservoir and downstream conditions. The fauna upstream was different from that of reservoir and downstream. Relative abundance of non-cichlids common to reservoir and… Expand
