This course is intended for engineers who are involved the design of new or replacement culverts (or other stream structures). It describes in detail the ways that culverts can present obstacles to fish passage and presents an overview of the design methodologies to overcome these problems. It also includes a discussion of fish ladders.
The overall objective of this course is to provide an overview of how fish react to culverts and other stream structures and how the engineer can design these features with fish passage in mind. When you complete this course you should be familiar with many of the methodologies employed in this field.
