Fish Passage 2013

The 2013 International Conference on Engineering & Ecohydrology for Fish Passage (Fish Passage 2013) promises to be an important international forum to exchange findings and experiences on fish related passage issues. Fish Passage 2013 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 watershed connectivity projects.

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 and after the conference (see Short Courses). In addition, tours will be offered on Friday, June 28th and Saturday June 29th.

Fish Passage 2013 follows the successful Fish Passage 2012 conference held at UMass Amherst in June 2012 and the Fish Passage 2011 conference also held at UMass Amherst in June of 2011. Details about the Fish Passage 2012 talks, including downloadable PDF's for many of the presentations, can be found here.
