DYKT? Fishways / échelle à poissons


Fishways, most commonly referred to as fish ladders but also known as fish passes, are structures placed on or around man-made barriers (such as dams and weirs) to assist the natural migration of diadromous fishes. Most fishways enable fish to pass around the barrier by swimming and leaping up a series of relatively low steps (hence the term "ladder") into the waters on the other side. The velocity of water falling over the steps has to be great enough to attract the fish to the ladder, but it cannot be so great as to wash fish back downstream or to exhaust them to the point where they cannot continue their journey upriver (…)
