DescriptionA 90-cm-diameter culvert with off-set baffles was set at a 10-percent gradient in an artificial stream channel on Admiralty Island, Alaska. Coho salmon, Dolly Varden char, and cutthroat trout, all less than 120-mm fork length, were able to move up the 9-m culvert. Additional work is needed to determine an upper discharge limit and to evaluate field installations.
