This book presents recent and ongoing developments in fish passage technologies in the United States and abroad. The importance of the multidisciplinary team approach to engineering design and fishery and ecological restoration is evident throughout this book, including chapters on engineering design, studies of fish behavior, and the evaluation of fish passage systems.

This book is intended for:

* resource managers * hydraulic engineers * biologists * hydropower developers * researchers * students * environmentalists
