Depletion fishing in the rivers Grote Nete and Kleine Nete in Flanders, Belgium

Latest version published by Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) on Sep 14, 2016 Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO)

The dataset contains the total catch number and total weight of the catch of fish species which has been electrofished in the rivers "Grote Nete" and "Kleine Nete" in Belgium. The scope of the project was to make an inventory of fish species abundance and density in both rivers. The data were used to make a red list of fish species in Flanders.
