SVNL_2018_0001: Outmigration patterns of Atlantic salmon smolts in the Dutch Delta in spring 2018.
Breve, Niels; Vis, Henry; Verspui, Remko; (2018): Survival and outmigration patterns of Atlantic salmon smolts within the Dutch Delta.

Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

This project aims to track the survival and outmigration patterns of salmon smolts in the intensely navigated area of the Dutch Delta during the spring of 2018. In early spring 2018 smolts will be obtained from the Roer (tributary river of the Meuse) and surgically equipped with V8-tags, followed by two days of monitoring wound healing and fitness in captivity. Afterwards the smolts will be transported downstream (passing 5 dams and a hydro power plant), acclimatized and released within the river Meuse , where tracking starts. Corresponding with the natural smolts run, receivers will be deployed from April until the end of June. This temporally installed network is composed of 30 receivers deployed in the Port of Rotterdam, Lake Haringvliet, Lake Hollands Diep and interconnected waterways.
