Fish need to move! They move to find food, places to spawn or they move to escape extreme temperatures and high and low water flows. Some travel long distances while others stick closer to home. But, they all need connected habitats. Unfortunately over 6-million man-made barriers, like dams and poorly designed road culverts, keep fish from getting to where they need to go.
