The University of Oviedo celebrates World Fish Migration Day 2016 and presents the upcoming AMBER project
The University of Oviedo together with the City Council of Sobrescobio (Asturias, Spain), presented the AMBER project to celebrate the World Fish Migration Day 2016. Eva García explained how the Tanes and the Rioseco reservoirs can affect the migration of fish, especially trout.
The University of Oviedo will lead the case study of the Nalon River, one of the two case studies that will be implemented in Spain. Fisherman, one of the main stakeholders, have been asked to collaborate. The fish scales can provide information to determine if fish have a normal behaviour.
Children have enjoyed a gymkhana through the streets of Rioseco. Organized by teams, participants had to think like a trout to solve riddles which made them understand that fish cannot travel as we can.
