Details

Fish passes are specialised structures designed to help fish swim upstream. If they are needed on rivers where there are salmon, sea trout and eels, the form and dimensions of the pass must be approved by the Environment Agency. They will make sure you provide an appropriate fish pass type and design.

Technical advice is available in the Environment Agency fish pass manual.
