Since 2010 ADF&G and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provide Fish Passage Workshops annually at no-cost to the participants. These 2-day workshops provide state-of-the-art information about the design and construction of fish-friendly culverts

Past presenters have included engineers, hydrologists, project managers and biologists from ADF&G, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities and local non-profits. Topics included:

  • Fisheries Biology,
  • Alaska Fish Passage Regulatory Framework,
  • Fish Passage Assessment,
  • Intro to Methods of Design,
  • Intro to Alaska hydrology and Geomorphology,
  • Stream Simulation Design,
  • Construction Considerations and
  • Introduction to Fish Passage Models.

Periodically we also offer field trips to view planned and completed fish passage projects for workshop attendees.
