On Monday the 29th of January, I graduated from the studies Coastal an Marine Management in the Netherlands. During my studies, I have worked on a broad range of case studies within my field of work. The first time I came across the World Fish migration foundation was during a volunteering job at the Fish Passage conference in Groningen (2014). I felt I wanted to learn so much more about the topics that were discussed during these days concerning migratory fish. After my project internship in Karlstad (Sweden) I learned a great deal about river quality and the anthropogenic stressors influencing them. During this internship I created the European Dam Removal Map. For my graduation thesis I have worked on a study for a monitoring plan for the Holwerd at Sea project. This project is about restoring the connection between the Waddensea and the in-dike fresh water streams in the Northern part of the Netherlands. After finishing my studies I knew that I want to keep involved with spreading knowledge and awareness for migratory fish and the importance of rivers. I have seen the heart warming events of the previous World Fish Migration Days and am curious about the new ones for the upcoming this year world fish migration day!!
