New Concepts in Fish Ladder Design: Final Project Report Part 2 of 4
fishway design, design, hydraulic conditions, fish passage
A comprehensive review of fishway design practice led to a new design concept that had previously been untested. This concept was based on the observation that fish can be stimulated to leap when presented with certain hydraulic conditions. A laboratory test program was conducted to develop this concept into a new fishway configuration. Field testing revealed that components of the new design improved fish passage. Verification of the initial premise that fish can be stimulated to leap needs further study.
