To date, few studies have evaluated sub-organismal responses (e.g., physiological or energetic consequences) of individual fish to hydropower infrastructure (e.g., fishways, turbines) or operations (e.g., fluctuating flows, low flows). The field of ‘‘conservation physiology’’ (i.e., the use of physiological information to enhance conservation) is expanding… CONTINUE READING
