International Conference on River Connectivity

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.

Fish Passage 2018 is a three-day conference with concurrent sessions in engineering, biology, management and monitoring techniques.
