Proceedings of the International Symposium on Fishways '90


The design of the Badush dam on the Tigris River includes the fish passage facilities. In order to check the performance of the designed fish ladder, the hydraulic model in a scale 1:15 was constructed. As a result of the hydraulic model study, several modifications of the original fish ladder design, which ensure the satisfactory flow conditions along the whole length of the fish ladder, were proposed.
