    Most of this would have consisted of dry excavation to form the canal with an estimate of 4, million cubic metres of rock and soil. It was projected that by 3, ships would have transited the canal annually. But canals are choke points that are vulnerable to disruption by any number of causesincluding administrative screw-ups, natural disasters and the age-old threat of piracy. This could ultimately lead to the extinction of many fish species important to surrounding fishing communities, and characteristic aquatic fauna such as freshwater bull sharks, sawfish and tarpon could also be affected. The San Juan River drains out of the lake, following a mile km course that runs from the southeastern shore of the lake through a densely forested region to empty into the Caribbean Sea. In addition to the canal infrastructure itself, other related projects include oil pipelines, airports, and industrial zones, which will negatively affect the migration patterns and biological dynamics of terrestrial animals.

    Direct and indirect damage to natural reserves such as the Indio-Maiz reserve and others will threaten Nicaragua's endangered species. Wang has promised as many as fifty thousand jobs for Nicaraguans during its construction, and said that the project ultimately will employ two hundred thousand people. Bloomberg reported in that "conspiracy theories abound" including the project was a land grab by Ortega, an attempt by Ortega to "whip up" support in elections, and part of a Chinese plan to gain influence in the region.

This caused concern about its possible effects on a Nicaraguan canal.

    Costa Rica protested that Costa Rican rights to the San Juan River had been infringed, and El Salvador maintained that the proposed naval base would affect both it and Honduras. This could ultimately lead to the extinction of many fish species important to surrounding fishing communities, and characteristic aquatic fauna such as freshwater bull sharks, sawfish and tarpon could also be affected. Thus, competition may undermine the Nicaragua Canal's economic viability if it was ever built. Three variants were considered, with minimum channel depths of six, ten, and twelve feet. For comparison, the Panama Canal handled 12, transits in
