The UROS project, which aims to restore the spawning and nursery areas functions in alpine lakes undergoing high artificial tidal range, is in its start-up phase.

Last Friday Gilles Lecaillon, Sébastien Fonbonne and our project partners from the IRSTEA / ONEMA cluster of Aix en Provence and the Alpine National Botanical Conservatory were on Lake Serre Ponçon to present the project to the SMADESEP (Mixed Syndicate in charge with the development of the lake) and the local fisheries organisation.

This first working meeting allowed to pre-identify suitable locations for future rafts composed of “floating Biohut” and to refine the work schedule.
