The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Alaska Department of Fish and Game and Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities invite you to attend a 2-day fish passage workshop.
This workshop provides engineers, planners, NGO staff, hydrologists, project and environmental managers, biologists, and others the necessary background to see a fish passage project from planning to completion. Participants will learn basic concepts related to stream processes and fish habitat, the basics of modeling fish and fish passage in different areas of the State, how to read and evaluate various designs, and how to minimize interference with stream processes and aquatic species movement. Regulatory and current standards across Alaska are presented and discussed. As information is presented in stages, participants will work in teams to resolve fish passage scenarios.
