Abstract

We monitored the recovery of fish biomass and benthic habitat of the Rio Doce, Brazil, catchment after the Fundão mine tailings dam rupture using noninvasive acoustic techniques. Results to date show no discernible differences between appropriate control and impact sites, and temporal trends in biomass are either holding steady or improving at sites that were in the tailings flow path.
