Contenu

What happens when a river is once again free to run? In the Sélune valley (Manche department in Normandy), the largest dam-removal project in Europe is being carried out in step with an unprecedented scientific programme aiming to better understand the changes in the ecosystem, monitor the return of migratory fish and participate in the future development of the valley.

This document summarises the international symposium organised from 24 to 26 September 2019 by the European Rivers Network, in conjunction with the National Institute for Agronomic Research, the French Biodiversity Agency and its River Resource Centre, the French National Fishing Federation, the Seine-Normandy Water Agency and Dam Removal Europe. Meetings were held in Rennes, Avranches and the Sélune valley.
