It’s a busy time at Fishtek at the moment. A few of the team are working hard out in the field to survey a large number of sites for invasive species and you can keep up to date with this via our twitter feed.
Our technical director Toby has been at a fish passage conference over in Laos this week, where he has presented the work that Fishtek have been involved in, designing the fish passage facilities on the Xayaburi dam on the River Mekong. Working with Poyry, the Fishtek team have contributed to the design of one of the largest fish passes in the world, a photograph of which you can see below.
The conference itself was a great opportunity to hear about the fish passage work being carried out in the Mekong region and everyone there heard a number of talks about new approaches being used to solve the problems faced by fish in the river from man-made barriers.
