In January 2022, the results of the first round of DNA mapping in Friesland were presented to the muskrat fighters. Based on the results, the catch intensity along the probable inflow locations in Friesland will be increased by placing a cordon of traps here. Smart wildlife cameras have been installed at the intake locations.
Red cross: influx from outside Friesland
Yellow cross: transfer in Friesland
In addition, in the period from February 2022 – February 2023, the tail tips of all muskrats caught in Friesland will be collected for follow-up research. The aim is to collect 100 muskrats this year, spread as much as possible across Friesland. More than 50 muskrats have already been collected.
