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.


There are no workshops scheduled for 2016.

There is no cost for attending the workshops or the one day fieldtrips, please contact Gillian O'Doherty for information on scheduling and participation.
