Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

Description
Silver eel migration tracking studies are often conducted in systems that are obstructed by mankind. In this study, we track silver eels from a freshwater river, into an estuary and subsequently the North Sea. Silver eels do not encounter any migration barrier during their downstream migration movement.
