    Un-impounded rivers provide energy for a number of vital processes in down stream estuaries and coastal areas upon which healthy fisheries are dependent. Freshwater and sediment inputs from rivers play a major role in sustaining estuarine and coastal ecosystems. The silicate inputs from rivers fertilize the seas by stimulating the production of diatoms which fuel food webs and play a crucial role in the biological uptake of CO2 by the ocean.
