Aquatic connectivity and impact assessment

Assessment of aquatic connectivity impacts is undertaken at a catchment or stream corridor scale in order to identify potential fish passage barriers, evaluate their significance, and assess priorities for barrier mitigation in the waterway. This typically includes:

  • reconnaissance level habitat assessment
  • barrier significance and connectivity impacts
  • mitigation options, effectiveness and feasibility
  • prioritization for barrier mitigation
