ScienceMan Digital Lesson - Biology - Fish Ladders

However, during the fall and winter as the seasonal flood pulse ends and water levels decrease these areas begin to dry out stranding fish in small lagoons where they are preyed upon by birds Ardea albai , Ciconia maguari , Jabiru mycteria and Mycteria american a and alligators Caiman yacare and also harvested by local fishermen. On the other hand, the fish leaping analysis indicates that a cm fish cannot ascend the spillway because its maximum leaping height and maximum leaping distance are both less than the height and length of the spillway chute, respectively Fig. We identified several shortcoming of spillway and the pool and weir fishway design related to both structural and hydrological factors. Fish passage failures of both the spillway and pool and weir systems in La Estrella marsh can be traced to the "salmon-centric" concept used by the designers. For safety reasons and ease of access, morphometric measurements of the fish ladders and main spillway were made during the spring low water period. A similar pattern was noted for the gated outlet located at the Salado River were fish were unable to ascend and either remained in the river or migrated downstream. Also, attraction flows relative to total spillway discharge at the entrance to each fishway are insufficient. Total length distributions were obtained from fish collected at the tailwater using gillnets. The hydrological cycle is characterized by heavy rain falls in the upper basin Bolivia from November to April and by local precipitation that peaks from October to March. Water regulation structures involve a main free over fall type spillway and two gated outlets functioning as secondary controlled spillways. We felt that measurements made during this critical period would provide the greatest information relating hydrologic and hydraulic conditions to fishways performance. We calculate that fish shorter 30 cm will be unable to ascend the spillway because their burst speed is lower than measured water velocity 4. One of this controlled spillway is located close to the main spillway and the other 6 km to the south on the Salado River channel. After the route was elevated forming the dam, the marsh upstream of the dam became permanently flooded even during the dry season. Fishermen also suggested that the critical limiting period for upstream passage occurs when the water level over the spillway crest drops below 0. The apron ends at a 0. Measured water velocities on the spillway crest ranged from 0. These high water velocities will limit the distance which fish can jump. These measurements are used to describe important design parameters that could then be compared to accepted guidelines. The most common fish passage systems installed in South America are of the pool and weir types ladders originally developed to pass salmonids and clupeids in northern hemisphere rivers Clay, ; Larinier, Godoy mentioned that more than 20 pool and weir systems in northern Brazilian dams were constructed to pass different species such as Prochilodus scrofa , Leporinus copelandii, L. Results derived from interviews with fishermen suggest that major fish concentrations in the main spillway tailrace are related to marsh hydrologic regime. Twenty local artisanal fishermen who permanently live and fish around the marsh were interviewed to obtain information about fish movements in the main spillway area. A dissipation pool depth of 0. All evidences indicate that adult sabalo that enters into the marsh during flood season, even surpassing the Route 28, and leaves the marsh as water recedes during the fall and beginning of winter and migrated upstream to the Pilcomayo River through a network of small marshes and creeks that interconnected during high flow periods. Consequently, a different equation is needed to estimate flow into the middle and lower pools versus the upper pool. Total discharge from upper pool is greater than discharge of the middle and lower pool. Based on our periodic observations, La Estrella marsh floods between February to June with the duration of flooding dependent on regional climate patterns. Like almost all fish ladders the performance of the pool and weirs systems at the Route 28 Dam is strongly dependent on water level. Only fish longer than 39 cm matched both criteria Area C, Fig. Since most of fish attempting to ascend the spillway are between 32 and 35 cm, such limitation explains why such a small proportion of fish were observed to pass the site. Fish are also unable to jump from spillway toe to spillway crest because the downstream dissipation pool does not meet the minimum depth criterion for fish to accelerate to sufficient velocity. Fish also try to escape upstream as they detect reduced water levels by attempting to ascend the main spillway or the pool and weir systems installed on the main spillway. The main spillway is m long and features three fish passage systems of the pool and weir type, located at the middle and at each end of the spillway. The minimum chute depth required for passage should be between 0. Estimated attraction flow at the entrance of each fishway is calculated as 0. The second is the Route 28 Dam so called because the roadway runs across a low-head dam and spillway crossing the marsh from north to south. According to Agostinho et al.

Fish passage system in an irrigation dam Pilcomayo River basin : when engineering designs do not match ecohydraulic criteria. Clay recommends minimum pool dimensions of 2. Fish ladder in irrigation characteristics.

During high water we noted that the fishways are completely overflowed and filled with debris whereas in low water period the systems stopped functioning as soon as water stopped overflowing the spillway. Fish swimming capabilities. Many dams augment water supply in South America wherever topography and river flow are suitable.

This parameter also controls turbulence and facebook groups aeration and reflects kinetic energy pattern in the fishway Tarrade et al.

Dam environmental impacts are increasingly an important issue Marmulla, because they fragment the landscape Agostinho et al. From middle the summer to fall La Estrella marsh is totally inundated by flows from the Pilcomayo River forming a large wetland that expands laterally as water runs from west to east across the marsh. In Argentina only two examples of pool and weir systems are known. Our evaluation is based on a simple quantitative analysis of the general hydrological and structural characteristics of installed fish passage facilities contrasted with fish swimming capabilities. This study is the first description and analysis of such a dam in Argentina and the results should have wide application to the many similar dams in the region. The lack of assessment is important because this fish passage system is one of many low head dams that either have been recently constructed or are planned for agricultural regions of Argentina and neighboring countries. We did not observe any fish passing the secondary spillway. Fish sampled in March and April of using gillnets and a beach seine in the Route 28 area ranged in total length from to cm with a mode of cm corresponding to a body depth of cm Fig. However fish this size have a body depth greater than the 0. Claudio R. No fish were observed using the pool and weir systems under the different flow conditions occurring during field surveys. To avoid such limitation the upper pool volume should be tripled. Information obtained by assessing the overall performance of the fish passage system and by relating the effects of specific design elements are important to ensure environmentally sustainable water resources development through effective mitigation and wise natural resource management. Each fishway is comprised of three rectangular pools. In addition pool hydraulic conditions are barriers to fish passage because only the most upstream displayed low capacity for energy dissipation. At the main spillway, they were able to catch fish by "snagging" quickly pulling hooks through the water thus confirming that fish pass over the route during the flood season. The upper pool is an extension of the spillway crest so that water can overflow directly into this pool. Long term specific hydrologic data for the Route 28 Dam describing water surface elevations are unavailable. In addition, the many fish that concentrate immediately downstream of the dam may suffer high mortality when they are stranded during low water periods. Volumetric dissipation power in the upper pool of each fish ladder is too low for fish to rest. At the primary spillway water is discharged over an uncontrolled 0. The Route 28 Dam is typical of many low-head dams in South America that could block the movement corridor of migratory fishes. Fish ladders have insufficient number of pools and some pool dimensions and designs depart from accepted standard designs. Those unable to escape upstream died as water evaporated or were eaten by alligators and birds. At each visit, when hydrological conditions allowed, visual counts of fish attempting to ascend the spillways or pass through the pool and weir systems were recorded. Results showed that only fish longer than 39 cm should be able to ascend the spillway chute, but when water levels on the spillway crest are over 0. The following formulas were employed to develop design parameters for an ogee crest uncontrolled flow spillway and pool and weir fishway. Even these systems have either ignored or underestimated the need to adapt designs to meet the behavioral characteristics and swimming requirements of neotropical fish faunas Agostinho et al. According to Webb et al. Like other marshes located on the Chaco plain, La Estrella is a highly seasonal environment with substantial differences between dry and wet seasons. We propose that during the flooding period in summer juveniles drift downstream and adults are able to cross over the roadbed and disperse into La Estrella marsh which ultimately connects upstream with the Salado River. Without question, long spillways with high slope chutes are effective fish passage barriers. The maximum velocity of the flow created by the lower pool drop depends on the tailrace water level, which ranged from 1. Important hydraulic characteristics of the fishways are calculated as follows. Burst swimming speed represents the highest speed that can be maintained for short periods using anaerobic metabolism Beamish, Fish movement patterns and demographic characteristics. Hydraulic characteristics varied among pools in the three fishways because of small differences in notch height, volume, and bottom profile Fig. Water level within the marsh is directed tied to the discharge of the inflowing Pilcomayo River Guinzburg et al. The study area was visited in March and April , September , and March to describe fish movements in the vicinity of the primary and secondary spillway areas and at fish ladders under different hydrological conditions. Spillway characteristics. Water depth in the chute decreases to less than 10 cm as water levels on the spillway crest decrease to 0. Structural and hydrological characteristics. We conclude that the Route 28 Dam design including its fish passage systems, do not follow criteria to cope with the strong hydrological variability and bioecological characteristics of fish inhabiting pulsatile systems such as La Estrella marsh. Volumetric dissipated power is an important hydraulic parameter that prevents a transfer of energy between pools. Fish between 30 and 39 cm total length, despite having a higher burst speed, could also not ascend the spillway because they cannot sustain sufficient speed along the chute length Area B, Fig. However they violate the body depth criterion and fish of the correct body depth violate the swim speed criterion. The dissipation pool at tailrace also does not meet the minimum depth criteria required for fish to jump to the height of the spillway. Flow into the upper pool of the fishway is estimated using equation 5 , but parameterized using information from spillway characteristics. Also, the water velocity at the waterfall crest the landing area of a leaping fish must be less than the fish's burst speed and water depth must be greater than the depth of the fish body depth for effective swimming. Surprisingly, the performance of the fish passage system at the Highway 28 Dam has never been assessed so that its adequacy to mitigate the impacts of the dam is unknown. Water temperature, dissolved oxygen concentration, conductivity, and pH were recorded with a Lutron IK on digital probe. The elevation of the Route 28 Dam was progressively increased from to to assure an all-season crossing for Route 28 over the La Estrella marsh thereby permanently connecting the northern and southern parts of the province and to provide water for land irrigation. There are an insufficient number of pools in the ladder and some pool dimensions departed from accepted standard designs. The Route 28 Dam ladders did not mitigate for the blockage created by the excessive slope of the spillway and also exhibit several structural problems.
