The 2012 National Conference on Engineering & Ecohydrology for Fish Passage (Fish Passage 2012) was an important national forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange findings and experiences on fish passage issues.
Fish Passage 2012 was of interest to researchers, educators, practitioners, funders, and regulators who had an interest in advancements in technical fishways, nature-like fishways, stream restoration and stabilization, dam removal, road ecology, and the myriad of funding, safety, climate change, and other social issues surrounding connectivity projects.
This was a three-day conference with concurrent sessions in engineering, biology, and management and social issues. The conference also featured plenary talks, professional networking opportunities, and a poster session.
Fish Passage 2012 followed the successful Fish Passage 2011 conference held at UMass Amherst in June 2011.
