Chile is rapidly expanding its hydropower capacity. Hydropower dams and other barriers can prevent the movement of fish for reproduction, feeding, refuge and gene flow, causing species extinction. As part of the European Commission funded project, "Knowledge Exchange for Efficient Passage of Fish in the Southern Hemisphere", this summer school will provide participants with the knowledge and tools necessary to design and monitor fish passage facilities. It will cover both upstream and downstream movement. Lectures and practical sessions from some of the world’s leading fish passage researchers will include topics essential for protecting rivers and biodiversity.
