A fishway or fish ladder is a waterway constructed on or around a natural or artificial obstruction to provide a passageway for fish and other aquatic species. The construction of fishway allows a seamless migration for the aquatic species despite the obstructions like dams, culverts and waterfalls, which otherwise would have affected their migration and therefore their survival.
