Client: Xayaburi Power Company, Laos, and AF-Consult Switzerland AG, Switzerland. In collaboration with TEAM Consulting Engineering and Management Co. Ltd, Thailand.
Period: 2011 – 2013
The Fish Biomass & Migration Study was carried out between 2012 and 2013 and included stationary and mobile hydro-acoustic surveys for enumerating fish abundance and biomass, as well as fish catching. The main purpose of the Study was to assess the biomass and migration patterns of migrating fishes to be found at the Project Site of the future Xayaburi Hydroelectric Power Project, which is an essential data basis for the proper dimensioning and the design refinements of the fish passing facilities.
