Study concludes that hydroelectric power causes marine impact

A joint study conducted between the Federal University of Pará (UFPA), the Federal University of Tocantins (UFT) and the State University of Maringá (UEM) concluded that the mortality rate of freshwater fish is higher in stretches below hydroelectric plants. One of the conclusions of the research is that the oxygen of the water is altered due to the movement of the plant.

According to the researchers, although this model of power generation is considered clean and renewable, schools are affected by the impacts that the hydroelectric plant causes on water. Among the possible consequences of this imbalance is not only the risk generated to biodiversity, but also the environmental and socioeconomic impact for the population that depends on fishing.

The guidance is that surveys and planning are done in a more improved way. A better structuring of what will be done, will bring benefits even to the safety of the installation
