Fishcon makes it easier for fish to pass through power plants and other migration obstacles.

The focus of our actions is a water passage with sustainable energy generation. Fishcon, based in Linz / Upper Austria, was founded by Bernhard Mayrhofer in 2018. In a short period of time, the company has received several prestigious awards, most recently in autumn 2020 with the Allianz Environmental Prize. Fishcon develops and sells space-saving and cost-saving alternatives to conventional migration aids that are used in transverse structures.

"We prove that ecological water protection and the use of hydropower can be combined in a sustainable way!"
