On the 1st of June 2018, the MEASURES international project has been set off with the participation of NAIK HAKI (Hungary). 9 countries and their partners are involved in the 3 years long project. Participating Countries are Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia.
The objective of MEASURES is to enhance and protect aquatic bio-corridors for migratory fish in the riverine network of the Danube River. This will be achieved by gaining and applying new knowledge on the habitat availability added to the existing knowledge on migration barriers. Based on these new insights, harmonized transnational actions for migratory fish habitat preservation and restoration by enhancing habitat connectivity will be developed. A newly established basin-wide active network of stakeholders will support the preservation and reintroduction of migratory flagship fish species with a strong focus on the Danube sturgeons. Thus, the project will pave the way for establishing transnational migratory fish bio-corridors by identifying, preserving and managing ecologically sensitive habitats along the Danube and its main tributaries.
