International Fish Screening Techniques

About the eBook

Countless millions of fish disappear into water abstractions used for power generation, water supply, irrigation and other uses. As fish stocks become depleted, countries around the world increasingly see this as a threat to sustainability and are seeking to minimize these losses through legislation and introduction of best practice guidance on fish screening. In March 2011, the United Kingdom’s Institute of Fisheries Management organized a two-day conference that attracted international experts from the UK, Europe and the USA. This book presents key papers from the meeting, which will be of interest to academics, practitioners and environmental regulators everywhere. There have been many new developments in physical and behavioural screening techniques, expanding the range of techniques available and their applicability to a wider range of species. For example, European legislation on protection of European eel stocks has added impetus to developing effective screening methods for this species, while there is increasing emphasis internationally on protecting younger life stages, which have previously been ignored. The developments covered are associated with potable and industrial water supply, irrigation, power plant cooling, hydroelectric generation, flood defence and other applications. The advent of individual based models (IBMs) of fish behaviour is also seen to offer new opportunities to predict fish behaviour associated with a given set of hydraulic conditions, with the potential to compare alternative techniques and deployments at the planning stage.
