pelton type turbines rely on kinetic energy rather than potential energy but both have more to harvest the bigger the drop.

an overshot wheel can work on a lower flow rate as the rotational speed can be adjusted to fill each bucket

undershot are the least effective.

thesemight be a bit too big but the words say as little as 100l/s is enough

they are fish friendly but perhaps a bit more of a scrapheap challenge than a wheel

ps pelton/turbine type wheels in a tube are like a blender for fish
