Recent Research on the Effect of Light on Outmigrating Eels and Recent Advancements in Lighting Technology
This is a review of studies between 2007 and 2015 evaluating the use of light to aid downstream passage of adult eels at hydropower projects. It includes primary literature (peer-reviewed and published in journals) and unpublished studies.
During downstream migration, some American eel are killed or injured in hydropower turbines. This report evaluates technologies to facilitate safe downstream passage.
