PDST sensor files European eel (Anguilla anguilla) Belgium


This data consists of the raw sensor data from a tagging study on European eel (Anguilla anguilla L.) caught and released in Nieuwpoort Belgium. The applied tags were pop-off G5 data storage tags (CEFAS Technology, Lowestoft, UK). Temperature was measured every 10 seconds and pressure (i.e. depth) every 2 seconds. The sensor data contains the raw data per eel with the tag ID as an individual eel. The tags were externally attached to eels and came off before or at a preprogrammed time, drifted to the surface, washed ashore and when found, the data could be downloaded when the tag was retrieved. Note that some recovered tags were reused hence a tag ID can occur more than once. This data is part of the eel-pdst-analysis GitHub repository: The sensor files have the following destination: eel-pdst-analysis\data\interim\sensorlogs
