A review of the data on fish passage through turbines shows that a good approximation of success levels can be based on the efficiency of an operating unit at the time when the small fish pass through that unit. To aid in determining the levels of efficiency of fish passage at the various flows used for power generation at various head levels, a series of graphic presentations is included. These show the relationship of efficiency based on the output (in horsepower) of the units and the range of operating heads for the various projects.
