Swimway Vechte: Swimway Vechte - A joint German and Dutch monitoring program for migratory fish in the international river Vechte.
Contact: Kamman, Jan

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 migration patterns of several fish species in the river Vechte in order to assess how well the river is functioning as a fish migration route. From fall 2018 through 2021 adult specimens of several highly migratory species (Burbot, Eel, Ide, River lamprey, Seatrout and Houting) will be obtained from the river during their spawning migration and surgically equipped with acoustic tags (VEMCO V7-V13). During this period more than 30 receivers are deployed in both in the Dutch and the German parts of the Vecht, and in other connecting river systems. Results from this project will ultimately provide insights into the presence of barriers and other challenges for migratory fish species in the river Vechte."
