Optimal gillnet sampling design for the estimation of fish community indicators in heterogeneous freshwater ecosystems

Monitoring of biota in heterogeneous ecosystems requires sampling in different habitats and across environmental gradients. The resulting...

Fish community response to the longitudinal environmental gradient in Czech deep-valley reservoirs: Implications for ecological monitoring and management

Ecological quality assessment of non-natural water bodies is, in contrast to natural systems, less developed and requires determining biological...

Predicting asp and pikeperch recruitment in a riverine reservoir

Fish recruitment in riverine reservoirs is not fully understood because the long-term data series required for standard stock–recruitment models...

Fish behaviour in response to a midwater trawl footrope in temperate reservoirs

This study addresses fish behaviour at the mouth of a midwater trawl in two temperate reservoirs. Fish distribution and behaviour were monitored...

Species-specific gradients of juvenile fish density and size in pelagic areas of temperate reservoirs

Data from nine reservoirs in the Czech Republic were used to investigate density and size distribution patterns for dominant fish species of the...

An assessment of the ecological potential of Central and Western European reservoirs based on fish communities

In this study we developed a novel methodology based on fish communities to assess the ecological potential of central European reservoirs. Using the...

Biomass and Abundance Biases in European Standard Gillnet Sampling

The European Standard EN 14757 recommends gillnet mesh sizes that range from 5 to 55mm (knot-to-knot) for the standard monitoring of fish assemblages...

Patterns in diel habitat use of fish covering the littoral and pelagic zones in a reservoir

We investigated diel habitat use of fish covering the littoral and pelagic zones of the Římov Reservoir (Czech Republic) and analyzed the influence...

Planktonic or non-planktonic food in young-of-the-year European perch Perca fluviatilis in ponds

Higher biomass especially of some aquatic macrophyte species offered a higher density of phytophilous zoobenthos, but did not increase the proportion...

Towards a better understanding of small scale distribution of littoral age-0 fish in a deep-valley reservoir: day or night surveys?

The effect of diel period and littoral habitats on the distribution of age-0 fish was tested in a deep-valley reservoir using boat-modified point...

Chaos and stability of age-0 fish assemblages in a temperate deep reservoir: unpredictable success and stable habitat use

Large year-to-year variability in different fish species recruitment has been confirmed by previous studies while diurnal patterns of occupation in...

Occurrence of age-0 year dwarf pikeperch Sander lucioperca in late summer – an overlooked phenomenon in reservoirs

Late summer sampling of pelagic age-0 year fish communities in five Czech reservoirs and one Dutch reservoir revealed extremely small age-0 year...

The utility of predatory fish in biomanipulation of deep reservoirs

Piscivorous fish may drive trophic cascades and maintain good water quality in lakes and reservoirs. Biomanipulation by stocking piscivores has been...

Extremely shallow spawning of perch (Perca fluviatilis L.): the roles of sheltered bays, dense semi-terrestrial vegetation and low visibility in deeper water

The roles of wind protected bays, presence of littoral vegetation and light attenuation in the water column on spawning site selection and depth of...

A simple method to correct the results of acoustic surveys for fish hidden in the dead zone

In lentic freshwater systems, vertical acoustics may underestimate fish abundance in the acoustic dead zone where fish detection capability is...

Eel attacks-A new tool for assessing European eel (Anguilla anguilla) abundance and distribution patterns with gillnet sampling

Because of its complex life cycle, cryptic behavior, body shape, ability to excrete mucus and excellent maneuvering, the European eel (Anguilla...
