The Culvert Fishway Planning and Design Guidelines are intended to introduce designers to fish migration barrier problems at waterway structures; assist in the identification of mitigation options; present a framework for planning, design and implementation of fish passage facilities; and provide a basis for achieving multipurpose outcomes in relation to fish passage, drainage, utility and environmental values.
