2018_EC: Silver eel migration through the English Channel into the Atlantic Ocean
Verhelst, P; Reubens, J; Coeck, J; Milotic, T; Moens, T: Silver eel migration through the English Channel into the Atlantic Ocean.

Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Seaward migrating eels are tagged with pop-off data storage tags (CEFAS, UK) at the Yser Estuary in Belgium. The eels are caught with fyke nets ca. 1 km from the estuary, where they are released after external tagging. The aim of the study is to elucidate the migration routes and behaviour of silver eels migrating from coastal Europe into the English Channel and the Atlantic Ocean.
