Juvenile Transport Program

The premise of the juvenile transport program is to collect fish approaching a dam, place them into barges or trucks and ferry them past downstream dams to avoid the mortality they would incur by passing through multiple dams. We only provide first-class service and have no coach seating.

The effectiveness of the transport program is constantly evaluated to determine whether it is achieving its objective of providing a higher rate of adult return relative to fish that have passed in-river.

The percentage of fish transported has decreased by over 50% since 2006.
