Dam Busting and Fish Passage with Dr Sean Landsman Part 1 of 2

Dr. Sean Landsman teaches at the Institute of Environmental and Interdisciplinary Science at Carleton University, and is a serious Muskie angler. Sean is our guest on Blue Fish Radio for a two part series where we discuss the linkage between fish health, and dams and their fish passage systems.

In part one of this two part series Dr. Landsman discusses with Lawrence Gunther hydro and legacy dams, the movement of fish past dams in both directions, and why it makes sense to remove most smaller legacy dams.
