fish passage conference

Dating back to 2011, the annual Fish Passage Conference has brought together experts, managers, stakehold­ers and companies from around the world with concurrent sessions in engineering, biology, and management and social issues.  Target audiences are: engineers, ecologists, biologists, managers, practitioners, NGOs, private companies, consultants, students and policy and deci­sion makers. This event aims at increasing research and profes­sional networking and is an ex­cellent opportunity to connect future partners.



The conference is overseen by a Steering Committee, members of which belong to the American Fisheries Society Bioengineering Section / American Society of Civil Engineers Environmental and Water Resources Institute Joint Committee on Fisheries Engineering and Science. 

The hosts for this year’s virtual event is the World Fish Migration Foundation.  Hosts change conference to conference.
