Unique project in the world: the fish migration river in the Afsluitdijk

20 April, 2018 •  General   Reports

Migratory fish need freshwater and saltwater for their life cycle. Due to dykes and dams such as the Afsluitdijk, that is hardly possible. It is an important reason why it is so bad with migratory fish.

Pike plants - like salmon - propagate on the spot where they were born. After a number of years they thus find their way to the fish spawning place.
