This study evaluated the effects of dam removal on fish assemblages in Sedgeunkedunk Stream, which is a small tributary feeding into the Penobscot River in Maine (U.S.). The results of the monitoring indicate that dam removal has significant impacts on upstream and downstream fish populations. The monitoring framework can be applied to analyze the impacts of stream restoration for other project sites as well.
