Abstract: Benefits of restoring riverine backwaters using weirs or other types of water control structures are evaluated. This approach allows: (a) site-specific characterization of backwater fish assemblages; (b) development of quantitative models of habitat quality; and (c) incremental estimation of habitat benefits of weirs with different crest heights. The technique is described within the context of two case histories for backwaters in the lower Mississippi River Basin based on empirical relationships between fish and habitat variables.
