Presstrip for selected journalists on the Hron River, which suffers from the fragmentation caused by small hydroelectric power plants. These have an impact not only on native fish species, but also on groundwater levels and floodplain biotopes. Also, the local community is also against the existing small hydroelectric power plants and the construction of new ones. We want to explain to journalists the negative impact of the SHP operation as well as the need to protect the river from the construction of new dams. We look specifically at SHP Želiezovce, which is causing environmental damage, including the fatal damage of the many individuals of northern barbel (Barbus barbus) caused by a malfunctioning fishway.
