Vianney Legendre Fishway

The projects supported by the Center of expertise on hydropower impacts on fish and fish habitat (CHIP - DFO) are lsited below. Theses projects are developed by DFO scientists to be complementary with NSERC HydroNet research program.

  • Thermal aspects of fish entrainment risk in Kinbasket reservoir (Mr. Patterson, DFO; Dr. Cooke, Carleton U; Dr. Power, U of Waterloo; Dr. Zhu, U of Alberta; Dr. Leake, BC Hydro)

  • Longitudinal and lateral responses in riverine communities to altered seasonal flow regimes (Mr. Clarke, Mr. Dempson, Dr. Smokorowski and Dr. Randall, DFO; Dr. Cunjak, CRI-UNB; Dr. Power, U of Waterloo; Mr. Steele, Brookfield Power; Mr. Sellars, Nalcor Energy)

  • Fish behaviour in relation to trash racks (Dr. Enders, DFO; Dr. Clark, U of Manitoba)

  • Numerical investigation of turbulent flows through trash racks (Dr. Ghamry and Dr. Paul, DFO; Dr. Clark,  U of Manitoba; Mr. Sydor and Mr. Lemke, Manitoba Hydro)

  • Evaluating changes in productive capacity of mountain streams as a result of flow diversions (Dr. Bradford, DFO; Mr. Turner, Simon Fraser U)

  • Experimental determination of ramping rate effects on downstream biota: Magpie River, Ontario (Dr. Smokorowski, DFO; Dr. Power, U of Waterloo; Dr. Marty, St Lawrence River Institute)
