The European Fish Hazard Index – An assessment tool for screening hazard of hydropower plants for fish (2020)
Journal Article
van Treeck, R., Radinger, J., Noble, R. A., Geiger, F., & Wolter, C. (2021). The European Fish Hazard Index – An assessment tool for screening hazard of hydropower plants for fish. Sustainable Energy Technologies and Assessments an international journal, 43, Article 100903. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.seta.2020.100903

Hydroelectricity is critical for decarbonizing global energy production, but hydropower plants affect rivers, disrupt their continuity, and threaten migrating fishes. This puts hydroelectricity production in conflict with efforts to protect threatene...

The Response of River-Resident Fish to Reservoir Freshet Releases of Varying Profiles Intended to Facilitate a Spawning Migration (2020)
Journal Article
Baker, N. J., Taylor, M. J., Harvey, J. P., Angelopoulos, N. V., Smith, M. A., Noble, R. A., …Bolland, J. (2020). The Response of River-Resident Fish to Reservoir Freshet Releases of Varying Profiles Intended to Facilitate a Spawning Migration. Water Resources Research, 56(6), Article e2018WR024196. https://doi.org/10.1029/2018WR024196

Natural hydrological regimes encompass varying seasonal flow characteristics that provide fish with cues and opportunities for upstream spawning migrations, but these flows are often modified/absent in regulated rivers. Compensatory artificial flows... Read More about The Response of River-Resident Fish to Reservoir Freshet Releases of Varying Profiles Intended to Facilitate a Spawning Migration.
