Default Re: Another Fish Barrier Removed

Hi Fred, lots of good work going on now it seems.

Here in the UK, apart from the method you just described they also sometimes take the step of building up a backflow of water below culverts to reduce the drop into the downstream side, allowing easier passage even when the water is running just a little higher rather requiring a torrent to be passing downstream before the fish can leap up into the pipe.

Wonder what the fish think about all this!?
