Friday seminar: European eel in regulated rivers: behavior, habitat use and passage performance

By Johan Watz from Karlstad University, Sweden


The critically endangered European eel serves as a flagship species in aquatic biodiversity conservation. The species has suffered severely from obstructed migration routes, and broad efforts to promote its recovery have been initiated. This talk will focus on fish passages for eels in regulated rivers, including solutions both for upstream-migrating elvers and for downstream-migrating adult silver eels, and how animal personality may play a role. Are fish passages at hydropower dams working as selective agents?
