Fish Handling Screen

Ovivo's fish handling band screens use the natural tendency of fish to seek shelter when caught in a stabilized flow by using buckets integrated with a revolving screen that safely capture the fish. As the screen rotates, elevating the fish to deck level, a series of gentle sprays guide the fish into a holding trough and then back to their natural habitat via a return trough. This method of recovery and return increases fish survivability on new or existing intakes and meets EPA requirements.
