dc.description.abstractVeracity of past analyses on the impact of impingement and entrainment of fish in power-plant cooling systems was questioned. Density-dependent dynamics were hypothesized as variable, not constant, making previous analyses based on constant density-dependent or density-independent mortality in error. This hypothesis was tested with a simulation model based on complex biological and behavioral mechanisms for individual fish, thereby forgoing the need for assuming the kind of mortality exhibited by a fish community prior to the analysis.en_US
