Abstract:This study has constructed a fish autecology matrix that considers physical habitat, spawning, ecological issues, water quality issues, and human values for Northern Taiwan. By using the matrix analysis method, fish community habitat requirements can be identified. The Taiwan Ecohydrology Index System (TEIS) has been developed by adding species habitat and ecological needs of fish communities to hydrological statistics to analyze flow requirements. This analysis is then used to develop indicators of an ecological flow regime that considers natural flow variability with species habitat and ecological needs to provide guidance in the management of the volume, frequency and timing of flows. The multi-objective model uses the ecological flow regime as the ecosystem needs objective and combines it with consideration of human needs to find solutions that can satisfy both ecosystem and human water needs.
