FISHCULVERT is a manufactured stream bed that facilitates the passage of fish through culverts, over obstacles including perched outlets and small dams and up steep slopes. Flow velocity is slowed down to critical levels for fish passage and a series of deep, watertight resting pools are created. FISHCULVERT is available as a stand-alone flume for perched outlets and small dam by-pass, as an invert liner for over steep, smooth walled or deteriorated culverts or as the invert component of a new structural plate corrugated steel pipe culvert. Individual bolt in, watertight baffles are available for all plastic, concrete, and steel culvert pipe from 1200mm to 3000mm diameter. Custom baffle systems are available for concrete box and pipe arch culverts. Fishculverts are made of welded steel that is co-polymer coated after fabrication. All steel components and polymer coating conform to CSA G401-14. Fishculvert Baffle Systems can be installed in factory or on new and reline/refurbish installations in the field.
A Universal Mounting Bracket securely attaches to Perched Culverts of all pipe materials, Concrete Dams and Stop Logs to field connect a Fishculvert Flume.
A Standard Fishculvert Flume reconnects fish passage at slopes up to 25%. Flumes can often be installed by a volunteer crew in a few hours, with little disruption of the stream, using only hand tools.
Custom designs are available for 3% to 25% slopes for a variety of pipe sizes, lengths and flow volumes.
