Sreenivasan, A. (1998) Fifty years of reservoir fisheries in Mettur Dam, India: some lessons. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 21(4), pp. 4-7.
The paper outlines briefly the history of the fishery in a dam reservoir in India. The reservoir was very productive in its early years, with support from a seed farm, ice plant, cold storage and regulated entry of fishery. However, once entry restrictions were relaxed and closed fishing seasons no longer enforced, the yield of fish from the reservoir declined.
