A fisheye view on fishways

Research output: Thesisexternal PhD, WU


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.
