Various methods have been developed to mitigate the effects of dams on juvenile salmon migrating to the Pacific Ocean through the Columbia River Basin. The collective results suggest that transportation may help mitigate adverse health effects of the Columbia River Basin's hydropower system on Snake River Spring Chinook salmon, but the fate of the transported fish in the estuary and ocean may depend on their hatchery of origin.
