I think they go straight to the garbage. In the old days at the coastal power plants, the operators would have a feast on fish, lobster and shrimp. Nowadays it is a big "NO NO" for a operator to take this sea food. I think the 200 lb. amount may be on the high end. I bet a average would be less. One of my friends that worked at a coastal plant. Told me they sucked in a scuba diver once. Although he may have just been trying to get a rise out of me.

Even where I work, I have access to many lakes and streams behind locked gates. I am not allowed to drive there and fish. I am only allowed the same access as the public for recreation. This was the same when I worked at Hoover Dam also.

Where I work for relicensing purposes. An outside enviromental company routinely puts nets at the outfall of our hydroelectric turbines. To count fish parts, which they rarely find. Not many trout will swim into a huge blender.
