Project: The Index of Biotic Integrity (Fish index) as an instrument to assess the biotic integrity of Flemish water bodies.
- project duration
- 01-SEP-99 – 31-AUG-01
- The project aims the development of an Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) for brackish waters as well as for the grayling- and trout-zones. Also relations between the IBI and other variables defining water quality, structural quality, migration restrictions and other categories of anthropogenic influences will be analyzed. Influence of mitigation interventions and seasonal fluctuations on the IBI-scores will also be part of the study.
