A fisheye view on fishways

Research output: Thesisexternal PhD, WU

Abstract

Barriers in rivers severely obstruct fish migration. To mitigate the impact, different types of fishways have been developed to facilitate upstream movements of fish. In this PhD-thesis the effect of a series of V-stepped fishways alongside weirs in the regulated River Vecht, the Netherlands, was evaluated.
