Beas spill: Food scarcity to hit dolphins, gharials 26.5.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Amritsar, May 25 Tonnes of fish which died due to the molasses’ spill in the Beas were supposed to breed in the coming monsoon. This implies that there will be hardly any addition to the fish population, leading to acute shortage of fish for a few more years. As fish is the main diet of Indus dolphins and gharials in the Beas, these creatures will face an acute shortage of food. Anticipating a long-term damage to fish biodiversity, experts of wildlife, fisheries and the World Wide Fund for Nature-India (WWF-India) are preparing an action plan to restore the aquatic balance. It has been observed that to streamline the fish population dynamics and conservation, it may take another three years to regain normalcy for the aquatic life in the Beas river. Starting from the upstream, an extensive survey is being done to determine the most-affected stretch of the river between Harike and Karmuwal. WWF’s field researcher on Bio-monitoring Indian Rivers project Gitanjali Kanwar said, ...
