Optimization of fish migration freshwater-seawater transitions


Scupper constructions create a hard transition between fresh and salt water, preventing migratory aquatic organisms such as fish from reaching their reproductive or growing biotopes. Through research into appropriate management of scupper structures, solutions are sought and evaluated in order to restore the migration possibilities of fish and other species.
