Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The goal of this assessment is to describe NOAA fish passage project activity at small scale dams and blockages; provide criteria for planning and monitoring fish passage and dam removal projects and assess the success of 17 projects carried out by the NOAA Restoration Center's Community-Based Restoration Program (CRP) between 1996 and 1999. Suggestions are made for incorporating dam removal into fish passage policy. While the focuses of these guidelines are NOAA Community-Based Restoration Center projects, the results are applicable to many small dam removal projects. The information provided will be applicable in many geographic areas, but primarily in coastal states and rivers supporting anadromous fish. NOAA managers in field office locations as well as government and non-profit groups involved in fish passage/dam removal projects will be able to use this information to prioritize projects, identify appropriate techniques for achieving fish passage goals and assessing the success of these projects.
