Evaluation of Juvenile Salmon Survival through the Bonneville Dam Spillway using Acoustic Telemetry

The objective of this project was to conduct a fish survival study for the Bonneville Dam Spillway by releasing acoustically tagged juvenile Chinook salmon in the spillway forebay and detecting them downstream in spring and summer.
