Our fish diversion screens are used in water systems to protect fish from hydroelectric turbines and pumps, and prevent their migration into irrigation channels and canals. Hendrick’s fish screens comply with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) standards. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Army Corps of Engineers, and many state departments of fish and wildlife deploy our screens for the protection of fish.

Hendrick offers two distinct manufacturing methods for our fish diversion screens: Profile Bar and resistance-welded wedge wire. Both are available in a variety of material options. With both types of construction, our fish screen design enables easy installation, protection and diversion for the desired area, and the flexibility to accommodate a variety of installation configurations. Our Profile Bar fish barrier is a unique, proprietary construction combining high strength with a smooth, low profile surface. Our wedge wire fish screens are ideal for cylindrical applications.
Fish screens and fish barriers are used for several reasons, primarily to either contain or exclude species from the screened area. For example, fish screens ensure that fish are not caught in waterway infrastructures. Fish screens for hatcheries ensure that species remain in the designated area. Fish screens also are an important component of environmental and conservation efforts. Our barriers are designed to be environmentally friendly for any species that may encounter it, as well as for the waterway itself.
Our dedicated staff works with you to determine the best options to design and build a screen to fit the distinct needs of your application.
