Quintella, Bernardo; Monteiro, Rui; Domingos, Isabel; Lino Costa, José; M. Alexandre, Carlos; Almeida, Pedro; (2018): Temporary acoustic network (using VR2w - listening at 69kHz) to track silver Europen eel (Anguilla anguilla) escapement from Mondego River Basin.

Temporary acoustic network to track downstream migration of silver eels (Anguilla anguilla) from the River Mondego (Portugal. Escapement rate was estimated during two consecutive spawning seasons (2014-2016) and their migratory behaviour was studied. 47 silver eels (males and females) were tagged with acoustic transmitters and their downstream migration was monitored with automatic receivers (VR2w - listening at 69kHz) deployed at four locations along the river course, from the first impassable obstacle (downstream Raiva Dam) up to the river mouth (67 km).
