Title: Fish passes and screens for salmon
Author: Salmon Advisory Committee
Document Type: Monograph
This Salmon Advisory Committee report describes the circumstances in which it is necessary or desirable to provide fish passes or screens to ensure the safe passage of migrating salmon (adults and juveniles) for the maintenance and enhancement of fish stocks; reviews the criteria for the design of passes and screens; and considers and develops the practicality of measuring the effectiveness of’ such facilities. It also stresses the importance of ensuring that passes and screens work effectively both for upstream and downstream migration. We are conscious that many species of fish other than salmon migrate or move through different sections of a river system and that the design of both passes and screens should also take these into consideration.
