This projectinvestigated small-scale hydroelectric power (HEP) schemes with the aim of improvingunderstanding of the environmental effects of HEP schemes in rivers. The studylookedat changes in fish communities from run-of-river HEP schemes compared with a set of control sites without hydropower across a range of river types and locations. The research showed that the impact of theseschemes on fish is limited, although the small number of samples means that subtle changes may not have been detected.
