A second field survey to collect data for the MesoHABSIM was performed on the Mareit/Mareta River jointly by the project’s partners. A field trip to the Ahr/Aurino River allowed to discover an ideal spawning site for grayling (Thymallus thymallus)!
The first field survey on Mareit/Mareta site was completed on 13th December 2016, with the participation of all the three partners. During the survey we collected topographic data, water velocity, water depth and substrate data and information about the mesohabitat. Simultaneously a detailed airborne mapping was performed.
All the project participants met in Bozen/Bolzano for the project kick-off meeting. The event was organized by the Free University of Bozen/Bolzano.
