2010_PHD_REUBENS - Acoustic telemetry data for Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) in the C-Power wind farm in the southern North Sea (Belgium)



This is an acoustic telemetry dataset published by Ghent University. It contains animal (fish) tracking data collected by what later became the Permanent Belgian Acoustic Receiver Network (https://lifewatch.be/en/fish-acoustic-receiver-network) for the project/study 2010_phd_Reubens, using VEMCO tags (V9) and receivers (VR2W). In total 41 individuals of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) were captured, tagged and released in 2010 and 2011 in the C-Power wind farm in the Belgian part of the North Sea, to study their movement behaviour and assess the impacts of offshore wind farms on their movement ecology. This dataset also includes the data of the synchronisation tags present in the study. To calculate exact 2D positions using acoustic telemetry, the time difference of arrival of signals at different receivers is used. Therefore sync tags are needed to account for clock drift in the receivers.
