This systematic review will address the need for a better understanding of the impacts of fish entrainment and impingement associated with hydroelectric dams on fish productivity in freshwater temperate environments. As the number of dams continues to increase worldwide, so too has concerns for their effects on fish populations. Fish injury and mortality at hydroelectric facilities may have serious consequences for fish populations, which are generally the result of three main sources: 1 fish passage through hydroelectric facilities i. Most studies on the impacts of entrainment and impingement at hydroelectric facilities on fish have primarily focused on: 1 how fish injury and mortality occurs; and 2 evaluations of the effectiveness of various management strategies used to mitigate harm during downstream passage.

American rivers are being overcrowded with large hydroelectric dams, which are destroying native ecosystems in rivers and streams. One way we are negatively affected is that hydroelectric dams can collect large amounts of mercury behind the dam, contaminating the fish and us.
