Project objectives

The main aim of the LIFE project is to improve the typical water body structures of the Isar, especially through restoration measures along the river banks. Thus, the living conditions of freshwater fish species such as huchen, asp, barbel and nase will be substantially improved. At the same time, the Isar should be made accessible again and therefore the recreational value of the river landscape will be increased.

Specific project aims are to:

  • Improvement of the river dynamics by optimising near-natural shore and water body structures
  • Conservation and optimisation of alluvial water bodies (backwater, oxbow lakes, tidal pools, temporary small bodies of water)
  • Development of near-natural soft- and hardwood alluvial forests
  • Conservation, optimisation and increasing of the dry habitats that are typical for floodplains
