This study aimed the evaluation of this fish migration position and if fish could pass the weir, by acoustic telemetry. A total of 35 fish were tagged of 5 different species and 2 hybrids: common carp (Cyprinus carpio), Wels catfish (Silurus glanis), European flounder (Platichthys flesus), roach (Rutilus rutilus), European eel (Anguilla anguilla), roach x rudd and roach x bream. We evaluated individual fish behaviour up-, downstream and near the weir and evaluatied if and when fish passed the weir. meer

Longitudinal and lateral connectivity of rivers is necessary for fish to successfully fulfill their life cycle. In Flanders, fish are obstructed in their essential free migrations by weirs, sluices, mills, pumping stations, …, which are needed to control the water level. The weir on the river Dijle upstream of Mechelen formed partially a physical barrier for the upstream migration of fish to the upstream part of the Dijle basin and the total of the Demer basin. An attempt has been made to resolve the shortcommings of the weir as migration obstruction, by the setting of a fish migration position. Results showed that 21 of 35 fish were able to pass the weir at specific hydrological conditions and weir management options. The number of passages differed between species, but happened always in the periods that higher passage could be expected following their lifestyle. The study indicates the importance and benefits of a fish-friendly weir management.
