Bike Touring Highlight
The developed Ems is a river with obstacles for migratory fish and other aquatic organisms. Slopes and dams such. B. the historic dams in Telgte affect the continuity and segment the body of water.In Telgte, the "Dümmert" branches off from the Ems main stream as a side stream. Both stretches of water are interrupted by the dams of former mills and, with a height difference of around 2.5 meters, represent an insurmountable obstacle to migration for fish striving upstream.In order to change this, a fish ladder, or “fish ladder” for short, was built for the first time in 2000 at the Kleinen-Ems weir in Telgte. In the area of the "Dümmertinsel", which is surrounded by the two arms of the Ems and is now used as a city park, a 140 meter long, near-natural bypass channel was created. In this way, migratory fish and small creatures were able to return from the downstream to the headwaters of the Ems.flussgebiet.nrw.de/das-ems-wehr-telgte-ein-klein-umweg-ermoeglicht-den-aufstieg-4643
