Projects and Webpages

Platform for European Sports Fisheries and Aquaculture
This European partnership project was determined by an acknowledgement that improvement could be made to currently existing Fish Management, Aquaculture and Sport Fishing practices.
Reseach Focus 'Alpine Space - Man and Environment'
The research focus Alpine Space – Man & Environment, established in 2010, is one of the five research foci of the University of Innsbruck.
Trout ExamInvest
Genotyping of local trout strains to identify relic populations and to build up indigenous breeding stocks for restocking of natural habitats.
RLPlot is is a plotting program to create high quality graphs from data.
