The construction site for the “Restoration of wildlife corridor in the Łupawa River by constructing a fish ladder” project was handed over a year ago.

What was its purpose? How long did it take to complete preparatory and construction work?

Let us take a look!

The “Restoration of wildlife corridor in the Łupawa River by constructing a fish ladder” project, as its very name suggests, was mainly aimed at constructing a fish ladder at the Smołdzino barrage, along with accompanying infrastructure. The latter includes a biometric fish monitoring station and an electric barrier.

The LIFENaturaSlowinskaPL project was launched in early January 2015. In this context, 2 January 2015 can be considered the official date when the Project Team began preparations for investment implementation. However, arrangement procedures for fish ladder construction, involving Energa OZE S.A. as the land owner, had started much earlier, and so had the development of the investment concept.

 

On 3 March 2020 we participated in a meeting held at the Maritime Institute in Gdańsk. The goal of the meeting was to start a discussion on and share experiences and views concerning projects aimed at improving fish migration.The meeting was held as a part of the project called “Development, promotion and sustainable management of the Baltic Sea Region as a coastal fishing tourism destination” and started with a presentation of the objectives of this project.
