Seaward migrating eels are tagged with pop-off data storage tags (CEFAS, UK) at the Yser Estuary in Belgium. The eels are caught with fyke nets ca. 1 km from the estuary, where they are released after external tagging. The aim of the study is to elucidate the migration routes and behaviour of silver eels migrating from coastal Europe into the English Channel and the Atlantic Ocean.
