2013_ALBERTKANAAL - Acoustic telemetry data for European eel (Anguilla anguilla) and hatched Salmon (Salmo salar) in the Albert canal (Belgium)



This is an acoustic telemetry dataset published by the Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO). It contains animal (fish) tracking data collected by the Permanent Belgian Acoustic Receiver Network (https://lifewatch.be/en/fish-acoustic-receiver-network) for the project/study 2013_albertkanaal, using VEMCO tags (V7, V9, V13) and receivers (VR2AR, VR2Tx, VR2W). In total 161 female individuals of European eel (Anguilla anguilla) and 134 (hatched) smolts of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) were captured, tagged and released between 2013 and 2017, to study the effect of shipping locks and hydropower plants on their downstream migration in the Albert canal.
