Regional differences in fish species, water quality, and water quantity have led us to employ site-specific approaches to fisheries mitigation in the development of hydropower faculties. Herein we present fisheries mitigation plans developed in association with the licensing of hydropower projects in four different regions of the United States. Differences in the concerns over each project reflect both biological differences and site specific concerns expressed by the commenting agencies.
