Fish Passage 2014

The 2014 International Conference on Engineering & Ecohydrology for Fish Passage (Fish Passage 2014) promises to be an important international forum to exchange findings and experiences on the topic of fish passage. Fish Passage 2014 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, invasive species, climate change, and other social issues surrounding watershed connectivity projects. Because of its location in the Midwestern US, this year’s conference will include a special track on fish passage issues in inland waters, including the Great Lakes and upper Mississippi River Basin.

This is a three-day conference with concurrent sessions in engineering, biology, and management and social issues. The conference will also feature plenary talks, professional networking opportunities, and a poster session. Independently offered short courses and workshops will be available immediately before the conference. In addition, tours of nearby fish passage facilities will be offered.

The conference will be held at the The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor’s Club located at 1 West Dayton St. in Madison, Wisconsin, nearby to the University of Wisconsin - Madison.

Fish Passage 2014 builds upon the Fish Passage 2013 conference held at Oregon State University and the 2011 and 2012 conferences held at UMass Amherst.
