11 Fish Passage in the Midwest, Challenges of Restoring Warmwater Migratory Pathways

Monday, September 13, 2010: 1:20 PM-5:00 PM
407 (Convention Center)
Movement of fish throughout a watershed is necessary for a number of life history needs.  Fish passage has been well established on the East and West Coasts but is fairly new in the Midwest.   The focus of this symposium is to examine fish passage at barriers to migration in and around the interior plains and Great Lakes.  The symposium will integrate presentations that examine both upstream and downstream passage of migratory warmwater fishes, such as sturgeon and paddlefish, and include fishway design and evaluation as well as fish behavior.
