DOI: 10.1134/S1067413609050117 The initial abundance of new fish generations 132.3 km ), this rate reached 0.69%; in mediumwater depends on a number of factors. Prior to river flow reg years (104.2 km ), 1.0%; and in the lowwater year ulation in the Volga, abiotic factors played the main 1996 (61.1 km ), 0.1%. The survival rate in the period role in this respect. Subsequently, especially in the from prelarva (up to 5 days of development) to finger 1980s and 1990s, the impact of numerous anthropo ling was 2.5%, varying from 1.0% in highwater years genic factors has caused disturbances in the structure to 1.9% in mediumwater years and to 0.1% in low and normal functioning of aquatic biocenoses and water years.
