Reason for signing

  • Salmon are a species that have enough pressures affecting them as it's fish ladders help them get upstream but barrier affects there migration patterns and affects fish populations. Hydro electric power plants can also cause water quality issues. Reduced flows affecting spawning grounds. Siltation when the power plant is constructed. Some factors taken into consideration minimise the impacts by having fish passes and screening.
