Newly Released Data Shows How Fish Pass Through Dams

Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have released a unique data set containing more than 5 million raw data points on the movement, behavior, and location of juvenile Chinook salmon as they traveled down the Columbia River through hydroelectric dams on their way to the Pacific Ocean.

PNNL decided to share the data with the larger scientific community in hopes it will broaden understanding of how fish behave near dams.
