American Shad migration monitoring

Periodic shutdowns of the generating station are performed to help with the downstream migration of adult American Shad. The study also aims at assessing a sound barrier on shad behavior. The barrier is installed yearly and the accoustic echoes from scanning sonars are used to calculate an abundance index.

The use of alternative ways allows the shads to bypass the hydroelectric facility downstream and thus increase survival rates.
