Watch this video about the fish species “Huchen” in Graz and Franz Keppel – a fighter for fish and rivers. Enjoy! (Sorry, in German only)
They are still alive – the Huchen in the free-flowing Mura in Graz! However, their surrival is at risk!! Previous restauration efforts of the Mura are now being irreversibly destroyed by the start of the construction of the hydropower project in Graz. Anywhere else the Huchen is being protected (IUCN Red List!), just not in Graz, since the Mura in Graz is not a designated European protected area. As a consequence, the Huchen and another 20 fish species are losing their habitat forever.
