The James Cook University's College of Science and Engineering undertakes hydraulic laboratory testing of fishway designs and has established field prototype fishway facilities at several sites in Townsville and Brisbane to assist with design, construction and performance evaluation of the fishways, including:

  • concept design of fishway facilities
  • hydraulic laboratory testing and design evaluation
  • design and construction of prototype fishways
  • hydraulic & biological monitoring and evaluation
