The allis shad is to return to the Rhine! The EU LIFE project Maifisch started in 2007 with this goal in mind. In 2011 the support of the LIFE+ project was extended, this time to develop suitable measures for the protection of allis shad stocks in France, but also to continue the reintroduction in the Rhine. Since 2017, the resettlement programme has been coordinated and implemented as part of the international allis shad project. The funding is provided by partners who already co-financed the LIFE+ phase (HIT-Umweltstiftung, Land Hessen, Bezirksregierung Düsseldorf, Rheinfischereigenossenschaft NRW, Sportvisserij Nederland, Verband Hessischer Fischer), as well as new partners in the federal states of Baden-Württemberg, Rheinland-Pfalz and Switzerland. The measures in the transnational allis shad project ensure a continuation of the stocking strategy as well as the development and establishment of monitoring techniques for the documentation of stock development and the management of allis shad in the Rhine. The tasks will mainly be distributed among four measures: The Rheinischer Fischereiverband von 1880 e.V., the Institut für Umweltwissenschaften (Universität Landau), the Umweltcampus Birkenfeld (Hochschule Trier) and the Association MIGADO in France. The allis shad project is managed and coordinated by the Rheinischer Fischereiverband von 1880 e.V.. In addition to administrative tasks, this also includes public relations work, which is supported by the Institute for Environmental Sciences (University of Landau).
