Nearly half of the world’s fish species live in freshwater rivers, lakes, and wetlands, even though those represent less than 0.01% of the Earth’s water.
Power Engineering highlights the opportunity that fish-safe turbines present for hydropower to make a dramatic sustainability upgrade and lead the way for other renewables.

Eel passage at high speed, fish-safe retrofits to transform the hydro fleet, new DOE-funded projects, and the "mussel" behind clean water.
Abe Schneider and Sterling Watson lay out the argument for fish-safe turbines in this paper published in The International Journal of Hydropower & Dams, Issue 5.
The World Wildlife Fund, the International Federation of Consulting Engineers and AECOM featured Natel in a playbook for engineers to learn about sustainable infrastructure development.
FishSafeTM RHT designs are at the core of two research projects that have been recommended for funding by the U.S. DOE to advance the science required to engineer fish-safe hydropower turbines.
MyHydro emphasizes fish-safe, distributed, run-of-river hydropower and is focussing on South Africa for its next development efforts, which will use Natel RHTs.
The NHA's POWERHOUSE features Kate Stirr's article on the link between clean water, freshwater mussels, and fish passage in hydropower.
