PhD research BOF in cooperation with UGent: Fundamental relations between spatiotemporal fish behaviour and hydraulic conditions in anthropogenically impacted streams

Project Details


This project will monitor and model the migration routes and behaviour of two fish species near hydraulic structures in the Albertkanaal, with the aim of developing fundamental knowledge on fishing behaviour related to hydraulic conditions. On this basis, it can be determined which circumstances are desirable or disturbing for fish migration.
