Equipment which was previously adapted less juveniles, are not in all cases longer best practice. That means new sizing of equipment and new technologies need to be submitted to take part in the trend.

New addition

The Camera Riverwatcher records fish after they have passed the scanner, usually going upstream. Since the scanner identifies the movement of fish and triggers the camera, the Riverwatcher needed to be equipped with two sets of scanners to record fish going both up and down. The new version allows us to look back in time and see what happened in front of the camera before the scanner identified the fish.
