Irrespective of this, it is generally accepted that mangroves constitute unique ecosystems that need to be conserved. , 1983), has identified 22 major uses.

However, destructive uses have become common for various reasons, and this is the major cause of concern. 2. Clearly the impacts of any of these activities on a particular location are highly variable.

It is reported that all the present-day fishery is based on stocked fish. Stock enhancement became a major government policy in many East European countries with centrally planned economies, as it was efficient in terms of worker productivity as well as in employment generation for the community as a whole. Large reservoirs formed by hydro-electric power stations in the former Soviet Union are managed as the locations of major sturgeon fisheries not only by stock enhancement but also by the transplantation of food organisms (Jhingran & Natarajan, 1979).

(From: Warrer-Hansen, 1982) that the water velocity in the settling zone is not too high, as otherwise resuspension of the settled solids may occur. Based on experience, Warrer-Hansen (1982) suggests that the velocity should not exceed 2– 4 cm s−1, and the depth and retention time have to be adjusted to obtain this velocity. Based on Danish experience, Mortensen (1977) concludes that a detention period of 20 minutes in a settling tank is sufficient in most cases to obtain satisfactory settling of suspended solids.
