Yesterday we recaptured the 18th of 19 eels we tagged and released upstream of the trap in Skärhultaån one month ago (22.08.2011). Watch out for missing No. 15, weight: 885 g, length: 785 mm, 1 orange mark at the dorsal fin. If he gonna be caught, we can call the catchability of the trap 100 %!

Additional, we marked two more groups with fancy green marks on there fins and released them at the same spots as we did last time. 5 dudes 500 m upstream of the trap and 5 dudes about 7 km upstream. One eel from the farther place in Kärnebygd allready returned last night (7 km!). Now, we are very curious if we can keep the good catchability with the new marking…

You can leave a response, or trackback from own site.
