    tWildlife value orientations are patterns of basic beliefs that give direction and meaning to fundamentalvalues in the context of wildlife. Wildlife value orientations can help managers estimate public eval-uations to management interventions. Their usefulness, both practically and scientifically, depends ontheir predictive potential. This article examined the predictive value of wildlife value orientations on theacceptability of wildlife management interventions in different situations. The situations varied in (a)severity of the human wildlife problem and (b) severity of the interventions for wildlife. Two wildlifevalue orientations were measured: domination (human needs have priority over wildlife well-being, 10items) and mutualism (rights are assigned to wildlife, 9 items). Acceptability was measured as a dichoto-mous variable for management interventions across 5 different situations. The predictive value of wildlifevalue orientations was largest for acceptability of the most severe interventions (hunting, 35–42% of vari-ance explained), followed by the least severe interventions (doing nothing, 5–17%) and the intermediateinterventions (shaking eggs or applying contraceptives, 1–9%) in the scenarios that include a problemfor humans. Value priorities appear to be an integral feature of value orientations. Intermediate inter-ventions do not harm wildlife, but might solve the problem caused by wildlife. Such interventions alsocreate minimal small internal value conflicts. Orientations that prioritize values and offer a template forconflict resolution are likely to have less predictive potential for these interventions.

    The vertical distribution pattern (VDP) of fish at shallow sites in eutrophic lake - Lake IJssel, the Netherlands - as affected by water transparency, was examined. The pattern was assessed by pair trawling at three depths and by hydroacoustics from June to August. Water transparency was estimated by light intensity and Secchi depth measurements. Hydroacoustics showed that fish were more dispersed at night than during the day. European smelt, (Osmerus eperlanus) and young-of-the-year Eurasian perch (Perca fluviatilis) comprised 97% of the fish in numbers. European smelt concentrated near the surface, at light intensities of >200 muW . cm(-2) when the water was turbid, and near the bottom when the water was clear (Secchi depth > 1.2 m). We concluded that low water transparency over-ruled the light sensitivity of European smelt, and caused European smelt to stay higher in the water column.

    IJsselmeer, a eutrophic, shallow lake (mean depth 4 m) of 180,000 ha, is heavily exploited by a fishery that catches dfl 11 million worth of eel Anguilla anguilla , perch Perca fluviatilis , pikeperch Stizostedion lucioperca and of the small zooplanktivorous smelt Osmerus eperlanus, the main prey for perch and pikeperch and for the piscivorous birds of IJsselmeer. The population of cormorant Phalacrocorax carbo affects the fisheries through its predation on perch and pikeperch, whereas black tern Chlidonias niger and black-headed gull Larus ridibundus are affected by the availability of smelt in IJsselmeer. The spatial distribution of prey fish and piscivorous birds was described as a function of spatial scale, water transparency and water depth. The carrying capacity of IJsselmeer for the production of prey fish was assessed, and a dynamic simulation model was constructed to predict consequences of fishery management measures on the fisheries and on the food availability for piscivorous birds.

    A towed body designed for side-scanning hydroacoustic surveying of fish stocks in shallow waters
    Mous, P.J. ; Kemper, J. ; Schelvis, A. - \ 1999
    Fisheries Research 40 (1999). - ISSN 0165-7836 - p. 97 - 98.
    An aluminum towed body was designed for use in hydroacoustic surveying of fish stocks in shallow (2–10 m depth) inland waters. The design allows applications in deep (>10 m) water bodies as well. Test results showed that the towed body was a stable platform for the hydroacoustic transducer. The towed body features adjustable beam direction, allowing a side-looking as well as a vertical-looking mode. As the design of the towed body is simple, it can be easily constructed by any skilled craftsman.
