Barrier Removal and River Restoration Guidance Available

The Joint Committee on Fisheries Engineering and Science through AFS has put together two amazing tools for AOP practitioners. The first is a training portal listing guidance documents, courses, and handbooks for barrier removal and river restoration. The second is a series of organized checklists that provide guidelines for stepping through each phase of a fish passage project starting with feasibility through implementation. They’ve also included a glossary of terms for related to fish passage and stream restoration.

The website lists opportunities to provide feedback and suggest additional resources so please feel free to engage with the group if you have comments or suggestions. This is a spectacular resource that took many hours to pull together and I hope it can be of use for the entire fish passage community.

The Fish Passage Training Portal and the Checklists can be found here: You can also find the site linked on the Fish Passage Portal under the ‘Resources’ tab.
