MIgration of silver phase and yellow phase American eels in relation to hydroelectric dams on the Shenadoah River

Duration

July 2009 - December 2013

Narrative

The American eel has experienced population decline, and one possible cause of this is the impact of dams on upstream and downstream migration. This study examines the upstream migration of eels in relation to eel specific fishways on dams of the Shenandoah River, and downstream migration of adult eels in relation to mortality caused by hydroelectric turbines.
