@EelGroup @ICMAN_CSIC @ieocadiz @IfapaJunta Thank you very much for your support.
Dr. Fernández Delgado @ba1fedec has been working on the Guadalquivir River estuary since 1997. With monthly sampling, is a very good data series, very useful for the conservation of #Eel and other species.
The research will continue 💪
