Project description

In this project, the migration routes and behaviour of two fish species near hydraulic structures in the Albert channel will be investigated by means of rigorous monitoring and modelling. Fundamental knowledge on fish behaviour in relation to hydraulic conditions in these structures will be developed in order to determine the preferred and disturbing conditions to fish migration.
