Attempts to avoid dams decrease survival in adult fishScientists have discovered that management efforts intended to assist migrations of salmon and steelhead trout can have unintended consequences for fish populations. Juveniles that are transported downstream on boats can lose the ability to migrate back to their breeding grounds, reducing their survivorship and altering adaptations in the wild.Transportation programs have been in place for over three decades to improve the survival of fish...
