Fish migration is essential for healthy rivers

Migratory fish all over the world depend on free flowing rivers. Today, river barriers like dams, sluices and many other obstacles threaten many fish species' survival.

Free flowing rivers, that allow fish to travel upriver, increase fish populations in the river and  assure healthy river life.
