Our fish testing and fish holding facilities can accommodate large numbers of freshwater, brackish water, and marine species for long periods in closed recirculating water systems.
The Taft Fisheries Research and Test Facility is a versatile testing facility with a large recirculating flume that can support a wide range of needs including biological and hydraulic performance evaluations.
A smaller recirculating test flume, operating at velocities up to 3 ft/sec, is available for evaluating individual technologies and testing species one at a time. One of the best features of this flume is the large, subsurface viewing window.
Additionally, a dedicated turbine blade strike apparatus is available for various studies.
