This PhD research investigates the fundamental relations between spatiotemporal fish behaviour and hydraulic conditions in anthropogenically impacted streams. The data in this dataset are collected by an acoustic VEMCO Positioning System (VPS) in an area of around three hectares direct upstream of a shipping lock complex and the inlet of a hydropower station. The aim of the VPS study is to evaluate the effect of the shipping lock and the hydropower station on the downstream migration behaviour of silver eel (Anguilla anguilla) and salmon smolts (Salmo salar) by linking fish behaviour to hydraulics. The shipping lock is located in Kwaadmechelen (Ham, Flanders, Belgium) at the Albert Canal connecting the river Meuse with the Port of Antwerp.
