Experimental Assessment of Swimming Capabilities of Selected Trout Species for Barrier Assessment

The primary objective of this research is to determine scientifically valid, volitional swimming abilities of westslope cutthroat trout and rainbow trout that reside in the Northern Rockies Ecosystem. This research will aid fish passage practitioners with better assessments, designs, retrofits and construction of hydraulic structures, including bridges and culverts, within our streams and rivers.
