Burst activity, requiring sustained and intense effort that cannot be maintained for very long (from a few seconds to tens of seconds, depending on the length of the fish, and the water temperature). This level of activity is associated with extreme acceleration (“darting”, “fast-start activity”) and leaping, i.e. violent activity of short duration. Practically all the muscular power used is provided by anaerobic mechanisms (in the “white” muscles) involving transformation of muscular glycogen…

Physical modelling of low-cost modifications to the Crump Weir in order to improve fish passage : development of favourable swimming conditions and investigation of the hydrometric effect
More than 350 Crump-type weirs (which are triangular in profile) form part of the Environment Agency’s hydrometric network in rivers across England and Wales. These weirs operate as effective
Stairs pipe culverts: flow simulations and implications for the passage of European and Neotropical fishes
Abstract Culvert fishways can improve upstream fish passage in brooks and have been studied in relation to North American and Australian species. Research focusing on fish species from other world
Fish passage system in an irrigation dam (Pilcomayo River basin ): when engineering designs do not match ecohydraulic criteria
TLDR
The Route 28 Dam design including its fish passage systems, do not follow criteria to cope with the strong hydrological variability and bioecological characteristics of fish inhabiting pulsatile systems such as La Estrella marsh.
Flow features in a pooled fishway with V-shaped weir formation
ABSTRACT A pooled fishway is an artificial structure to improve the river flow connectivity and facilitate fish migration. Its conventional layout is characterized by straight weirs and suffers from

Fish experiments with potamodromous species were conducted in the laboratory of Hydraulic and Water Resources Engineering (VAO) of Technische Universitat Munchen (TUM) to investigate the fish
Fishway with two entrance branches: Understanding its performance for potamodromous Mediterranean barbels
Many fish passes have been built across the world in recent years. This study analyses the performance of a modified type of pool and weir fishway with two access branches, using passive integrated
Physical modelling of pool and weir fishways with rock weirs
The flow characteristics of pool and weir fishways with rock weirs were studied through physical modelling. Detailed flow measurements were obtained using an acoustic Doppler velocimeter to
Passability of Potamodromous Species through a Fish Lift at a Large Hydropower Plant (Touvedo, Portugal)
TLDR
Water temperature was the most significant predictor of both cyprinids’ movements, whereas mean daily flow was more important for trout, and size-selectivity found for barbel and trout could reflect electrofishing bias towards smaller sizes.

Effects of Temperature on the Maximum Swimming Speed of Fishes
TLDR
This paper defines the effect of changing the temperature of the swimming muscle on the muscle contraction time and examines the consequent effect on the maximum swimming speed and some adaptation and compensation tactics that might help regain the speed lost in cold water.
Limit of fish swimming speed
TLDR
The tail beat frequency or frequency of strides is considered to be limited by the contraction time of the swimming muscle of the fish, and maximum observed swimming speeds are found to fit the dimensions of the muscle twitch time and stride length.
Fish pass design - criteria for the design and approval of fish passes and other structures to facilitate the passage of migratory fish in rivers
Many of British rivers hold stocks of salmon (Salmo salar L.) and sea trout (Salmo trutta L.) and during most of the year some of the adult fish migrate upstream to the head waters where, with the
Upstream Passage of Adult Salmon Through an Unlit Tunnel
TLDR
Numbers of adults have succeeded in negotiating tunnel and weir, despite the hitherto-assumed unattractive conditions of low velocity and complete darkness, in the first spawning season following construction of the tunnel.
ANALYSIS OF BARRIERS TO UPSTREAM FISH MIGRATION -- FINAL REPORT
This paper presents a detailed analysis of waterfalls and culverts as physical barriers to upstream migation by salmon and trout. Analysis techniques are based on combining barrier geometry and
