On Sunday 13 October, we inaugurated the fish ladder in Leuven along with the Flemish Environment Agency. A great many people showed an interest in this achievement on a sunny day. Thanks to this fish ladder, fish can now swim upstream around the weir and reach the upper and side waters of the Dyle to spawn and rear their young there. An initial test revealed a range of fish species.
