    Because it's literally a ladder built near structures like dams and such to allow for the migratory patterns of certain fishes.

    Fish ladder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The one I shot is what I think is a Pool and weir type, being the most common where the fish can come in thru the entrance into one pool, hop up to another pool, then hop up again and again until they're back out above the dam.

    Mainly because the fish have quite a bit of trouble making back up this:

    And I've seen em try they can hold their position halfway up for like 2 seconds before falling back down lol.
