Fish Passage Research Published in International Journal

The Journal of Fish Biology has published a study by WTI Road Ecology researcher Matt Blank and his colleagues in the MSU Ecology Department and at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “Evaulation of Swimming Performance for Fish Passage of Longnose Dace Rhinichthys Cataractae Using an Experimental Flume” highlights research conducted in a custom research flume constructed at the Bozeman Fish Technology Center. This type of field study helps researchers assess the swimming abilities of rare or declining fish populations, so barriers can be identified and removed and new fishways can be properly designed to allow natural movements.
