Visdoorgangen - Fish passage places in Flanders, Belgium

Latest version published by Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) on Sep 14, 2015 Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO)

Migration of fish in streams and rivers is prevented by various structures (mills, weirs, locks, ...). To make the migration of those fish species possible again, various projects are realized in Flanders. This dataset contains information on the functioning of the fish passages.
