Symposium 26

Behavioral Technologies for Fish Guidance presents up-to-date information on an important fisheries bioengineering topic. Fish passage management is relevant to fisheries in fish protection systems at hydroelectric power stations, cooling water intakes for steam electric power stations, irrigation water intakes, and similar points of water withdrawal from public waters. There is currently much action on this subject from regulatory and research fronts. This symposium proceedings fills the need for peer-reviewed documentation of the results of recent research and demonstration experiments with several technologies, fish species, and locations. New concepts in fish guidance, as well as guidelines for the development of behavioral guidance technologies and regulatory agency perspectives on the use of these technologies, are also presented. In addition to its technical content, the book includes materials and information currently available only in difficult-to-obtain agency reports.

Highlights include:

* Measurement systems for detecting fish behavior in passage experiments * Regulatory perspectives from FERC and NMFS * Peer-reviewed documentation of the results of recent research, and * demonstration experiments with several technologies, fish species, and locations

This book is intended for:

* Fisheries and bioengineering students * Researchers, regulators, design engineers
