Floating Culvert Ramps

Floating Culvert Ramps improve fish passage into culverts and other fish passage barriers.

The Floating Culvert Ramp is designed to reconnect aquatic habitat above and below a passage barrier such as a bridge or culvert. The Floating Culvert Ramp eliminates the vertical drop below a perched culvert. Many fish species can traverse water velocities expected at most sites. The Floating Ramp can be easily installed prior to new culvert installation or can be retrofit to existing structures.

Several Floating Ramp installations have been established around the world for a variety of fish and other aquatic species. Let our passage experts help design a solution for you.
