2021_transcal: Trap and transport of silver eels from a reservoir to an estuary
Verhelst P., Van Wichelen J., Winter HV., Reubens J. 2021. Trap and transport of silver eels from a reservoir to an estuary.

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 many reservoirs like lakes and ponds, European eels have been stocked either unintentionally or intentionally, for instance for recreational fishing. Since these reservoirs are not connected to rivers, eels are unable to migrate to the sea for spawning. In this study, we investigate if large eels from the Callemoeie reservoir (Belgium) still migrate to the sea when transported to an estuary.
