Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the possible contribution of historical and archaeozoological data to the establishment of reference conditions. First, the methodology used by fishery biologists to evaluate and monitor water quality is presented in general terms. Then a case study shows the fishery research carried out through time in the Scheldt, a major river basin in Belgium. Lastly, the chapter describes the biological information that is relevant for the compliance with the water framework directive (WFD) and discusses the added value of historical and archaeozoological data from Flanders for an integrated approach to the evaluation of the quality of river basins.

Keywords: archaeozoological data; fishery management; Flanders; Scheldt Basin; water framework directive (WFD)
