Summary

Full Title

Visherintroductie - Reintroduction of the fishes chub, dace, burbot, and brown trout in Flanders, Belgium

Description

To evaluate the success of the reintroduction of the fishes chub, dace, burbot and brown trout in Flanders, Belgium, 20 trajectories in nine different watercourses were electric fished. In addition connected lakes "Rotselaar" and "paaigracht" were fished. The captured numbers were compared with the expected numbers, which were determined in previous studies based on habitat suitability models. The dataset also includes the length and mass of the caught fishes.

Methodology

Study extent

20 trajectories in 9 watercourses in Flanders, Belgium where reintroduction occurred: Abeek, Bosbeek, Ijse, Terkleppebeek, Grote Nete, Laan, Pauwelsbeek, and Vleterbeek.

Sampling description

Electro fishing was used to measure the reintroduction success. The number of individuals was recorded, as well fork length (tip of snout to fork of tail in millimeter) and weight (gram). The water temperature was measured in °C.

Quality control

All records are validated.

Method Steps

  1. Electronic fishing was used to sample the trajectories.
