Fishways and fisheries restoration

Our watercourses have a large amount of obstacles that impair the movement of fish and other migratory animals. In some cases, natural and technical fishways can be the solution to this problem. Sometimes it may be possible to dismantle the obstacle and restore the watercourse to its original state. In addition to the restoration of migration routes of fish and other aquatic animals, habitats, or the areas where fish lay eggs and produce offspring, also need to be restored.

We help you design:

  • natural fishways;
  • technical fishways;
  • demolition of hydraulic structures and restoration of a watercourse to its original state; and
  • models of fish habitats and river restorations.
