The twaite shad (Alosa fallax) is an anadromous fish species, growing at sea but spawning in freshwater. Many knowledge gaps persist on the lifecycle of this clupeid species. It is for instance unknown where shads reside at sea during their growing phase. In this project, we tag twaite shads with data storage tags (G5, CEFAS Technology ltd., UK) to geolocate their movement patterns at sea. As such, we hope to know map their spatio-temporal distribution to inform management so they can take adequate management measures for this European Habitats Directive species.
