None supplied. Summary: A review of the investigations into determining levels of turbine mortality and the causative factors at specific projects was wisely recommended by a group of scientists from the Northwest state and Federal fish and wildlife agencies. It was desired that the potential of existing data for mathematically formulating relationships between turbine design factors, operating conditions and fish survival be determined. This report details the nature of the review, presents an analysis of existing information, draws conclusions on the practicality of its use for prediction and makes recommendations for future work.
