The release of fish into the lake will undoubtedly be of benefit to fishermen and Iranians who enjoy a fish dinner. There are many large artificial lakes in the U.S. that are also good sources of fish.

Sometime last year, I learned about Iran's program to build many large dams to generate hydroelectric power. The article interviewed some famous archeologists who were quite dismayed at the speed of the program. They were certain that many of these valleys to be filled with water contained important ancient artifacts from Iran's 6000 years of civilization. I thought it was a terrible shame that so much of Iran's great heritage would be drowned under deep water.
