Abstract
This project aims to track the migration patterns of several fish species in the river Vechte in order to assess how well the river is functioning as a fish migration route.
From fall 2018 through 2021 adult specimens of several highly migratory species (Burbot, Eel, Ide, River lamprey, Seatrout and Salmon) will be obtained from the river during their spawning migration and surgically equipped with acoustic tags (VEMCO V7-V13). During this period more than 30 receivers are deployed in both in the Dutch and the German parts of the Vecht, and in other connecting river systems.
Results from this project will ultimately provide insights into the presence of barriers and other challenges for migratory fish species in the river Vecht.
