FISHGAL: Monitoring spatial ecology and behaviour of coastal FISH species in off GALicia (NW Spain)
Citation

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

Description
The FISHGAL project develops a tagging program of coastal fish species off the Galician coast. FISHGAL is supported by the fixed acoustic array established in the project MOBEIA (see ETN projects) to tracking the tagged animals. The main objective of FISHGAL is to build time series of fish movement and behavior to understand their response to environmental and human pressures in highly developed coastal area, Galicia. more

FISHGAL tagging program, carried out by the Fisheries Ecology group of the IIM-CSIC, started by the summer of 2019. It was stablished as a result of a national project, TAC (Pleamar program, Fundación Biodiversidad, 2018), to evaluate the efficiency of the National Park as a marine protected area and continued by DESTAC and IGENTAC projects (Pleamar program 2019 and 2020). Several species have been tagged so far (Raja undulata, Raja clavata, Scyliorhinus canicula, Raja brachyura, Labrus bergylta). Fish were tagged using VEMCO (69 kHz) and THELMA BIOTEL tags (69 and 71 kHz), more than 175 fish by 2021 and growing.
