Fish migration research in the Netherlands

This is a video collection about fish migration and eels.

Translated from the Dutch RAVON ichthyologists:

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

On Monday March 2, the volunteer project North Sea Canal and surrounding areas started again. About 40 volunteers went off that night with their lift nets to 18 different sampling locations. In 2014 the monitoring yielded encouraging results. Then, 2,402 migratory fish were caught during three months. Will this be equaled in 2015?

The launch of the project on March 2, was encouraging. During this cold night with high winds more than 1,000 three-spined sticklebacks were caught in Pumping Station Overtoom! In Beverwijk it was 50 three-spined sticklebacks, three silver bream and a lesser pipefish. After completion of the monitoring a first small glass eel swam along! It promises to be an interesting year. Volunteers in the coming period will monitor twice weekly after sunset. The purpose of this monitoring is to gain more insight into the migration of migratory fish to the North Sea.
