Monitoring the environment of man-made lakes: what can fisheries data and models tell us?

Project No. A/CZ0046/2/0029

Applicant: MSc. David Boukal, PhD., As./Prof. Jan Kubečka, PhD.

Financial support: EEA Grant/Norway

Duration: 2009-2010

Research and development of a comprehensive database on fish population dynamics and history of exploitation in selected man-made reservoirs in the Czech Republic. Development of mathematical models to identify exploitation strategies that take into account stakeholder interests along with the ecological and evolutionary consequences of the exploitation, with the aim to identify the 'best' strategies and identify data/parameters/processes whose measurement can greatly improve the quality of the monitoring of the status of fish stocks in Czech man-made reservoirs. Communication of the main scientific findings to the key stakeholders identified during this study.
