Aquatic Connectivity - Tidal

Aquatic Connectivity Scoring Systems for Tidal CrossingsWe have developed a protocol for the assessment of tidal stream crossings, including data forms, instructions, and training materials, all available on our NAACC Documents page. A web-based database was then created to serve as a convenient repository of the data collected in crossings surveys.

Anyone can survey crossings using NAACC protocols but they must belong to an organized regional group headed by a designated survey coordinator. Training and certification are also required, to ensure high quality data.
