Engineering Fish Passage
Steven Thomas, NOAA
Anadromous fish are born in freshwater, migrate to sea, then return to their natal spawning grounds to reproduce and the cycle begins anew. Human activities in rives and stream have created barriers that impede fish passage along their migratory corridors. Many of the barriers have been fitted with engineered solutions to mitigate the impacts of human activities. This seminar will present an overview of engineered solutions to common fish passage problems, with a focus on issues in California’s Central Valley.
