Fish moved in island lake reconstruction

This video shows shoreweed in an aquarium.

The blog of Staatsbosbeheer on Terschelling island in the Netherlands reports that, temporarily, the water has been pumped out of Doodemanskisten lake.

This is part of reconstructing the lake, with better water quality. They hope the reconstructed lake will attract rare water plants, like pillwort and shoreweed.

In May, wardens caught fifty eels and twenty northern pikes. Recently, they caught 250 eels and thirty pikes, and hundreds of sticklebacks. These fish were moved to water elsewhere on the island.
