Fish migration through flood control sluice gates.


The objective of this sub-project was to determine the seasonality, directions and magnitude of fish migrations through flood control sluice gates at the Bangladesh study site, for comparison with sluice gate operations and hydrological seasonality. Such information was required to make recommendations on the management of sluice gates for the joint benefit of both floodplain agriculture and fisheries. This investigation was undertaken during the five months July to November 1996, in which the Pabna study site was inundated.
