The project LIFE Network Danube Plaus

The project LIFE Network Danube Plus connects the habitats between the VERBUND Danube power plants at Altenwörth and Greifenstein. Together with our partners, we are making the Danube fish-friendly and barrier-free. Lower Austria's longest fish pass is being built in Altenwörth. In Greifenstein, fish-friendly measures in the "Gießgang" have reconnected the Schmida and Göllersbach rivers to the Danube again without barriers.
