Title: PNNL Fish Telemetry: Improving the Sustainability of Hydropower One Tag at a Time

Abstract

Evaluating the environmental impact of hydropower is critical to the growth, development, and maintenance of this vital energy source. Operators, developers, and regulators often turn to animal telemetry to measure the effect of dams on fish populations. PNNL’s tagging portfolio consists of a range of tags suitable for a variety of applications from active tags slightly larger than a grain of rice to larger tags that power themselves via a fish’s natural movement.
