The influence of eel odour on the efficiency of a freshwater eel ladder and trap was assessed during two glass eel and yellow eel springtime upstream migration seasons in the Vilaine estuary, France. This test consisted of alternatively directing the outflow from the trap holding bin, away from, or onto the trap access ladder and comparing catches. Catches were 1.4 higher for both glass eels and juvenile eels when the trap water was directed towards the pass. The experiment had little influence… CONTINUE READING
