This project examined the fish downstream passage and “Paxitest” for the evaluation of the fish protection and fish downstream passage at the hydropower plant “ Rappenberhalde” at the Neckar river, near the city of Tübingen.
This project had, among others, the following objectives:
a) Verification of the applicability of the “Concept for the evaluation of fish protection and fish descent” (Schmalz, Wagner & Sonny 2015) in practice
b) Provide quantitative functional statements on the fish protection and fish descent at the site of study
c) Supply scientific statements and reasons for the species-specific use of the sub-corridors at the site of study
This project was carried out in close cooperation with FLUSS.
