Conservation measures for the Eurasian otter in the Czech Republic

A2 Estimation of otter abundance

One of the actions undertaken by the Czech national Otter Management Plan is population surveillance and mapping. Estimates of otter numbers in selected core areas are utilised to obtaining various additional information. These include otter population density, abundance, structure and development of the population trend in these areas. Information about otter population density will also be used for calculating the of amount of otter-caused damages for which Czech state pays compensation.
