Development and fabrication of fish passage devices

Characteristic fish movement behaviour, waterway types, and structure configurations for Australian waterways require adaptation, design and development of fish passage devices suited particularly to these conditions. James Cook University's College of Science and Engineering is actively developing these as follows:

  • design objectives and multipurpose requirements
  • design and configuration of fish passage devices
  • fishway suitability and performance evaluation
  • fishway component design and fabrication
