The dataset contains records of the Otter (Lutra lutra) collected in the lower valley of River Sabor (NE Portugal), in the scope of the long-term Ecological Monitoring Program (PME) of the Baixo Sabor Hydroelectric Dams (AHBS), promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. This dataset includes results of surveys made in and around the area affected by the dams, from September 2010 to November 2013. Sampling was performed with camera-traps distributed along the lower Sabor river valley (and some tributaries) and along the rivers Maçãs and Angueira, from the river mouth up to 42 km upstream. The presence and identity of the target species were assessed with the visualization of photos taken through camera-trapping.
