Reelease: Silver eel migration from the Baltic Sea into the North Sea
Verhelst, Pieterjan; Svendsen, Jon; Kristensen, Martin Lykke; (2019): Silver eel migration from the Baltic Sea into the North Sea

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

Study to track silver eels migrating out of the Baltic Sea into the North Sea. The pop-off data storage tags can elucidate the migration routes and behaviour beyond the Baltic. Additionally, double tagging the eels with acoustic transmitters will allow for a comparisation in migration speed between eels that are externally tagged with pop-off data storage tags and eels that are not.
