A river fishway is a hydraulic structure enabling fish to overcome stream obstructions such as dams in hydroelectric power plants. The main aim of this paper is to present an application of mathematical modeling and optimal control theory to an ecological engineering problem related to preserve and enhance natural stocks of fish migrating between saltwater and freshwater. Particularly, we improve the optimal shape design of a fishway. This problem is formulated within the framework of the… CONTINUE READING
