Special Edition of Journal of Ecohydraulics
Journal of Ecohydraulics
We are pleased to inform that The Journal of Ecohydraulics s (TJoE) will publish a Special Issue to accommodate abstracts submitted to Fish Passage 2018.  Interested authors will be provided the opportunity to nominate their abstract during the formal conference submission process for consideration for publication.  Abstracts will be reviewed with invitations offered to publish with final manuscripts due by November 30th.

We posit that TJoE is designed to be an excellent vehicle for topics covered by the ecohydraulic trilogy: 1) movements and passage of aquatic biota; 2) environmental flows; and 3) ecological restoration.  To submit a manuscript please use this link: https://tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=tjoe20&page=instructions
