Higher head facilities that impede migratory fish use trap and transport to varying levels of success. There are ongoing efforts to improve the downstream passage. One such effort seeks to attract fish by using large flow, shedding most of the attraction flow, and routing fish downstream using minimal flows. To demonstrate BioPA is suitable for improving downstream high head fish passage, a similar type flow path will be used in this document.
