Description
In the present study the fish population dynamics and fish community structure of the brackish part of the Western Scheldt are investigated. The evolution of the species compostion and relative abundances of fishes are monitored. more

Samples are taken monthly at the outlet of the cooling water of the nuclear power station in Doel. The influence of tidal and diurnal cycles on fish intake is investigated.
