Flatfish: Flatfish
Reubens, J.; Deneudt, K.; Hostens, K.; 2016. Field test to estimate tagging potential of several flatfish species.
Contact: Reubens, Jan

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

In this field study the potential to tag several flatfish species was tested (i.e. Pleuronectes platessa, Limanda limanda and Microstomus kitt) using existing receiver setups in an offshore wind farm (.e. Belwind) in the Belgian part of the North Sea and an estuary (ie. Westernscheldt) in the Netherlands. Acoustic tags from Vemco were used, type V8. Tagging was performed external.
