Excerpt: Rivers, lakes, reservoirs, swamps and other wetlands are known as inland waters . Traditionally, the fish in rivers and lakes were used for food and for local sales or trading. But the nature of inland fisheries is changing. The waters are now often shared with many groups of people who are not involved in fishing. These groups are associated with large projects and industries such as dams, mining and agricultural irrigation schemes. These activities often bring in much more money than fishing activities. However, these projects can pollute and otherwise damage natural environments, including fish habitats, and bring significant change to the life of local residents. Some conservation groups are reacting to increasing environmental damage, and often ask for restrictions to be placed on some or all of the activities that affect rivers. These restrictions sometimes benefit fisheries, but may also limit fishing and, as a result, cause problems for fishing communities.
