Three biological and technical options are available for coping with acid rain damage on freshwater fisheries. Fish tolerant to acidic conditions can be identified and bred to improve strains. A second option is to accept the acid rain damage and compensate for it by improving fish production in waters that are not sensitive to acid impact. The most viable technical alternative is to control emissions at the source. Other technical options for mitigating acid rain effects are also surveyed.
