Improved fish ladder at the Herbrum weir

The Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration declared in the Master Plan Ems 2050 its willingness to improve ecological traversability at the Herbrum weir by 2021. The fish ladder erected with the weir in 1959 no longer completely meets modern traversability requirements, thereby making it an impediment to the migration of sea fish and cyclostomes (lampreys). It should thus either be expanded or replaced with a new fish ladder.
