In the frame of the World Fish Migration Day 2020, Life4Fish and ILEE (UNamur) organise a webinar on

Hydropower: Insights about turbine impacts and evaluation of some mitigation measures

Dams associated with hydroelectric power plants (HPP) disrupt river connectivity and affect fish movement and survival. Several studies determine the impact of HPP in terms of fish survival and damage. However, little information is available on their impact regarding the ability of fish to continue to migrate. The LIFE4FISH project aims at assessing this mid-term impact on fish migration and further evaluates in-situ the efficiency of some mitigation measures. First results will be presented in this webinar.


14h Robert Mandiki, UNamur, ILEE: Introduction to the Life4Fish project

14h15 Imen Ben Ammar, UNamur, ILEE: Turbine's direct and delayed impacts on migrating Atlantic salmon smolts and adult European eels

14h45 Damien Sonny, Profish technologies: Characterization of the downstream migration of European silver eels by acoustic telemetry along 6 successive HPP dams in the River Meuse : global kinetics, passage repartition and result of mitigation measures
