Citizen science is working

Picture1

Approximately 300 fish have been tagged so far, and the tagging will continue at least until end April, where all fish have probably left the delta of Ishøj to venture into brackish water over the summer.

The tagging of perch in Ishøj is being reported at a high rate, which is due to the commitment of the local fishermen. To date, 20 % individuals have been reported via this homepage, and of those, 3 have been caugth more than two times. Coupling this with water parameters (www.saltnfish.dk/vandmaaler) and a population estimate will be a great contribution to my PhD thesis, which is mainly focused on labexperiments.
