Status:   Active - Operational
Site Type: Adult Fishway  |  Organization: Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission
General Operational Period: Year Round
Start Date: 1/18/2003 6:00 AM

This site monitors the Washington Shore fish ladder and the adult fish facility (AFF). Antennas are installed in the weir orifices downstream and upstream of the AFF. There are also antennas installed in the two sample flumes in the AFF. Separation by Code is available at the AFF in the form of notification lights when designated PIT tags are detected in the sample flumes. Fish detected at BO3 and heading upstream are expected to be detected at BO4 afterwards.
