The article focuses on the protection of the Carmans River in New York. George Costa, president of the Art Flick Chapter of Trout Unlimited, whose membership works to conserve, protect and restore Suffolk County's watershed, is an example of the kind of people who are working hard to protect the Carmans. One of its projects is the construction of a fish ladder to restore fish migration up the river.

    The access for anadromous brown trout (Salmo trutta) to watercourses on Funen was poor due to migratory barriers for upstream moving fish. Since 1990 fish passages have been established at 192 of these obstructions. We investigated the effect of the fish passages on parr abundance (age-0) at 24...
