Action D3: the monitoring systems at Prata dam and at Lake Tana are active!

Monitoring systems on the Toce River have recently been activated under Action D3 to assess the effectiveness of the Prata fish passage and of the Lake Tana fish passage. The evaluation of effectiveness is carried out through two monitoring systems: detection by PIT tag antenna and video-monitoring. The PIT tag (Passive Integrated Transponder) is [...]

The fish monitoring

The interventions of river restoration have to be done with appropriate environmental monitoring. The defragmentation of the artificial barriers, the restocking of some native species and the control of the invasive alien species, foreseen in the IdroLIFE Project, need adequate environmental investigations, before and after the intervention. The capture with electrofisher allows the temporary [...]


Control of invasive alien species

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) defines as invasive alien species a species introduced outside of its natural distribution, which becomes problematic. The invasive alien species represent one of the most common threats for the biodiversity. The IdroLIFE Project foreseen the containment of the invasive alien species with a strong impact on [...]
