Fish passage design for waterway structures involves site scale assessment to establish the characteristics of the fish passage barrier and to define mitigation measures for aquatic connectivity and other multipurpose requirements for the site. This typically includes:

  • evaluation of hydraulic barriers to fish passage
  • fish passage design objectives and criteria
  • fish passage options and evaluation of suitability
  • design and configuration of fish passage facilities
