Symposium 10: Proceedings of the 1988 “Fisheries Bioengineering Symposium,” held at Portland, Oregon.

This book presents 65 papers based on the interface of biology and engineering. Most of the symposium was devoted to solutions in two divergent topics: habitat improvement and restoration, and mitigation via hatcheries, which define the main alternatives available for correcting fishery losses in developed river and which are the professional concerns of bioengineering. New approaches to habitat rehabilitation, fish passage design, and hatchery function are covered.

This book is intended for:

* salmonid fishery managers * hatchery managers
