Short summary
The aim of this study is to understand the impact of flow regulation on supporting ecosystem services in the Beas Basin in India, using macroinvertebrates as an indicator. Findings show that both river flows and macroinvertebrate abundance have decreased overtime in the Beas Basin. Consequently, this could have a detrimental impact on instream supporting ecosystem services delivery. Such an understanding is important in future water resources management in the Beas River Basin.
