Fish Passage 2015

More Puffins soon. I was busy with fish; the yearly international conference visited Europe for the first time, in Groningen!

The happy fish from Kornwerderzand arrived in Groningen
and was caught by Henk Ovink, the Special Envoy of International Water Affairs
masterclass fishway design
a lot of international attention for our project during talks and exhibition; the FishMigrationRiver
Watch this extremely inspiring movie if you have the chance! Rivers connect the continent with the ocean and need to flow free. Made by Patagonia, buy those clothes!

river restoration = dam removal, Elwha river dam in 2013
the reservoir is gone, removal of the dam restored and opened 100km of suitable habitat for 7 species of Salmon
