  •  There is a danger in utilising the tidal energy (none)
    to generate power. It alters the energy flow through channels and harbours where the genrators are installed, this may have serious consequences for fish hatcheries and water quality where tides may flush out sediment laden water. decreasing the energy  of tides will increase siltation.

    Before heralding tidal power as the fix for energy junkies, conservation, efficiency and better housing design need to be considered as higher priority.

    •  Are you talking about natural... (none)
      or man-made fish hatcheries.  Because if you had read what is in farm-raised fish, you wouldn't be eating them and this would not be an issue of concern for you.
      •  estuaries, mangroves and tidal flats (none)
        not "man-made"

        Many commercailly exploited fish start life close in shore before taking off to the open ocean.

        But i am talking about the natural hatcheries
