Anthropogenic alterations to river systems, such as the construction of dams and weirs, have significantly impacted fish populations globally by reducing connectivity to key life stage habitats. Langsett Reservoir, situated in south Yorkshire, holds... Read More about Behaviour and spatial ecology of resident brown trout in Langsett reservoir and its tributaries with impassable weirs.

Understanding temporal variability in fish and eel movements to minimise the likelihood of entrainment at water pumping stations (2019)

Rivers in the United Kingdom have been subject to extensive modification to meet societal demands for navigation, drinking water, industry, hydropower, drainage, and abstraction. This heavy pressure on river resources has resulted in many constrained...

Mitigating the impacts of river flow regulation and barriers to fish spawning migrations (2018)
Thesis
Baker, N. J. (2018). Mitigating the impacts of river flow regulation and barriers to fish spawning migrations. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4223320

Globally, migratory fish are threatened by anthropogenic modification to rivers. These create barriers that prevent fish accessing spawning grounds required for completion of life cycles. In order to make informed decsions, for mitigating the associa... Read More about Mitigating the impacts of river flow regulation and barriers to fish spawning migrations.
