International Conference on Fish Passage

Fish Passage 2018 – Conference Overview

The 2018 International Conference on River Connectivity (Fish Passage 2018), incorporating the First International Symposium on Hydropower and Fish Management, will bring together Northern and Southern Hemisphere fish passage researchers and practitioners to exchange findings and experiences on fish passage issues.

Fish Passage 2018 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, environmental flows and fish responses, and the myriad of funding, climate change, and other socio-economic related issues surrounding connectivity projects.

Fishways have been an essential component of hydropower projects worldwide. The First International Symposium on Hydropower and Fish Management has been incorporated into Fish Passage 2018 as a venue to provide opportunities for researchers, managers, and the hydropower industry to discuss and collaborate on key topics. A Special Issue of Marine & Freshwater Research will be made available at the conference for manuscripts related to the themes in the Hydropower and Fish Management symposium.

Fish Passage 2018 is a three-day conference with concurrent sessions in engineering, biology, management and monitoring techniques. The conference will also feature plenary talks, professional networking opportunities, and a poster session.  Independently offered short courses, workshops, and tours will be available immediately before and after the conference.
