Man made dams along rivers can block the migration of many species of fish to their spawning grounds upriver; most notably the American Shad, Hickory Shad and Salmon. American Crane offers specialized lift equipment designed to assist fish in the migratory process of swimming upstream to these spawning areas.
Fish lifts work by using water currents to attract the migrating fish into a channel. The equipment safely crowds the fish into a lift station for transport upstream of the dam. Specialized features are designed into each system to offer highly reliable performance in an outdoor application under all weather conditions. American Crane is proud to supply products that preserve our precious wildlife resources.
