The 2011 National Conference on Engineering & Ecohydrology for Fish Passage (Fish Passage 2011) promises to be an important national forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange findings and experiences on fish passage issues.
Fish Passage 2011 will be of interest to researchers, educators, practitioners, funders, and regulators who have an interest in advancements in technical fishways, nature-like fishways, stream restoration and stabilization, dam removal, road ecology, and the myriad of funding, safety, climate change, and other social issues surrounding connectivity projects.
This is a three-day conference with concurrent sessions in engineering, biology, and management and social issues. A poster session is also offered.
The University of Massachusetts is hosting the conference in cooperation with sponsors including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the National Fish Passage Program.
