Details

The overall aim of this study was to produce design criteria and best practice designs for eel and elver passes. A Technical Report (Solomon and Beach 2004) undertook a review of relevant aspects of eel biology and existing passage facilities for eels and elvers. This manual summarises the earlier Technical Report and develops design criteria for passage facilities in a range of situations.
