Abstract

In this report, we describe the habitat use of twaite shad before the activation of two electricity cables between the wind turbines at sea and Borssele. The results indicate that twaite shads not only use the Westerschelde in spring as a migration route to and from the spawning sites in the Zeeschelde in Belgium, but also as foraging habitat in the summer and autumn. They mainly stay near the shores of the Westerschelde and probably use the deeper zones (i.e. fairway) to move between the estuarine banks.
