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.
2014 Workshops:Stream Simulation Design Approach for Providing Aquatic Organism Passage at Road-Stream Crossings
(PDF 235 kB),
May 5-9, 2014, Anchorage. Presented by the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and ADF&G. This 4.5 day workshop will present the U.S.D.A. Forest Service’s stream simulation method, an ecosystem-based approach for designing and constructing a channel through the road-stream crossing structure that reestablishes physical and ecological continuity along the stream corridor.
