LifeWatch observatory data: fish acoustic receiver network
Description in English
In the framework of LifeWatch the permanent acoustic receiver network will be maintained as a research infrastructure that allows studies on migration patterns of several migratory fish species. For marine, coastal and estuarine systems, Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua Linnaeus, 1758), will be the model species, while in Belgian rivers European eel (Anguilla anguilla (Linnaeus, 1758)) is representative for catadromous downstream migration. In a later phase, other species, such as European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax (Linnaeus, 1758)), twaite shad (Alosa fallax (Lacepède, 1803)), river lamprey (Lampetra fluviatilis (Linnaeus, 1758)) and sea trout (Salmo trutta Linnaeus, 1758) can be investigated.
Abstract in English
As part of the Belgian LifeWatch observatory, a permanent acoustic receiver network for fish tracking is established in the Belgian Part of the North Sea and the Western Scheldt. Using acoustic telemetry distribution, movements and habitat use of tagged migratory fish can be tracked. Tags or transmitters are surgically implanted in the belly of individual fish. When swimming in the vicinity of an acoustic receiver (Vemco), the information of the unique ID-code of the transmitter is stored on the receiver together with an exact timing of the event. When signals are simultaneously received by multiple receivers, an exact positioning of the tagged individuals can be derived from the raw data. In total 40 transmitters are implanted and 51 acoustic receivers are installed on buoys and other platforms.
