NDFF KOR project

Latest version published by Dutch National Database of Flora and Fauna (NDFF) on Mar 26, 2018 Dutch National Database of Flora and Fauna (NDFF)

The Kor project involves fishing on the beach with small tow nets. The fish and crabs that are caught are counted and measured. The Anemoon Foundation uses this method to gain knowledge about changes to the populations of juvenile platvis such as Schol, Schar, Tong and Bot. The Kor method is explained on the website of the Anemoon Foundation.

Kor excursions are led by an experienced observer of the Dutch associations for young nature enthusiasts (the NJN/JNM).
