The dataset contains records of Pyrenean desman (Galemys pyrenaicus, Mammalia) collected in the Rivers Tua and Douro sub-basins and included in the Ecological Monitoring Program (2011-17) of the Environmental Impact Assessment of the Foz Tua Hydroelectric Dam, promoted by EDP – Energias de Portugal, S.A. Data were collected between June 2011 and May 2017 during field visits to up to 30 sampling transects in the riverbeds of the selected water lines with favorable habitats for the species. The presence of individuals was recorded by direct observation of signs (scats and/or footprints).
