We are glad to report that we have created ATET-TECH US as we have recently incorporated in the state of Florida to conduct fish conservation business in the US for all water users.
ATET-tech is one of two companies presenting information on fish passage technologies at the Power of Water Conference October 29-31, 2018. Niagara Falls, ON. The session is on integrating fish passage in retrofits and redevelopments at hydroelectric facilities. We look forward to meeting you there.
An excellent summary of research activities of the LGD technology has recently been published in the June 2018 Hydro Review magazine (pg- 70-77). It includes results from a variety of species including sturgeon and American eels.
ATET-TECH scientists co-authored two new publications with academic researchers highlighting test results for attraction and repulsion of fish using the proprietary LGD systems. One publication entitled Behavioural guidance of yellow-stage American eel Anguilla rostrata with a light-emitting diode (LED) device was published in the Endangered Species Reserach. A second publication entitled Preferences of age-0 white sturgeon for different colours and strobe rates of LED lights may inform behavioural guidance strategies was published at the Environmental Biology of Fishes. Please contact us for copies of the publications.
ATET-TECH was granted a US patent for its invention entitled: Integrated Fish Diversion System and Lighting Device Used Therein. A total of nine different claims were granted. and the effective date is February 27, 2018.
ATET-Tech scientists jointly with colleagues from LimnoTech and Carleton University will be presenting a paper at the Hydro Vision International Conference to be held in June 26-28 in Charlotte, NC. The paper's title is CFD Design of an integrated fish passage system using new light guidance technologies.
ATET-Tech jointly with DFO and Carleton University scientists presented a paper entitled: Behavioural Guidance of Yellow-Stage Americn Eel with a Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Device at this symposium held with EPRI sponsorship this past December 12-13, 2017 in Cornwall, Ontario
ATET-Tech has expanding its database on the responses of different species of fish to the LGD technology. Experiments were succesffuly completed with Lake Sturgeon at Manitoba Hydro’s Grand Rapids hatchery. Work was conducted by Carleton University and the report is being reviewed.
On September 27, 2017, ATET conducted preliminary tests jointly with Milne Technologies and Carleton University at Corbett's Dam, Ontario, on migrating chinook salmon.
The results were shown at the 2017 Power of Water Conference, held in Niagara Falls in October 2017.
