Abstract: Modern society requires large volumes of fresh water. The result is the installation of multiple river barriers, causing the fragmentation of riverine habitats as well as changes in the ecology of freshwater ecosystems. When it comes to fish, stepped fishways are the most common solution to allow them to move freely through river barriers and complete their life cycles. However, the natural variability of rivers (e.g., discharge, floating debris, etc.) modifies the hydraulic conditions within these structures, directly affecting fish passage, and thus, it becomes vital for fish a real-time assessment and management of the fishway.
