BO1 - Bonneville Bradford Is. Ladder

Status:   Active - Non-Operational
Site Type: Adult Fishway  |  Organization: Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 3/27/2002 12:00 PM

This site monitors the Bradford Island fish ladder at Bonneville Dam. The ladder has two branches, one from the northeast side of the island and one from the southwest side, that meet below the visitor center and exit above the first powerhouse. Weir antennas are installed in most weirs in both the A and B branches. These antennas detect fish that pass through the weir orifices, but likely miss fish that pass over the weirs. There are also four antennas in the vertical slots above the counting window, that provide 99% detection efficiency. In 2018, two antennas were added that monitor the lamprey passage structure.

These coils began interrogation at noon on 3/27/02. Data were submitted manually on Monday, Wednesday and Friday until permanent installation was completed. NOTE: The date/time stamps associated with fish records collected during this temporary configuration are times that data were collected, and not times that fish transited the ladder.
