Which is the right way for fish to go?

A watercolor picture of a blue stream surrounded by rolling green hills.  There is a brown mother duck and three baby ducks standing on one bank.  There is a gray concrete fish screen in the middle of the stream with fish swimming past it.  The fish screen is in the shape of a three-dimensional triangle, and covers the intake of an agricultural canal.  The back and sides of the triangle are solid, while the front has a mesh screen to allow water in, but not fish.

To protect fish and juvenille salmon from swimming into an agricultural canal, fish screens are placed to help them stay on the right path.
