Abstract

This paper presents an approach for assessing upstream fish passage problems at small hydro projects. Fundamentally, the technique involves evaluating and comparing the swimming and jumping capabilities of a target fish species with the hydraulic characteristics prevailing at the dam face. A knowledge of fish behavior characteristics and the timing and duration of the fish migration period is needed for assessing the overall fish passage potential at the hydro facility.
