The special stock of Atlantic salmon in Vosso watercourse was strongly reduced in the end of 1980s.  

A major research project started in 2000, focused on mapping the status of salmon stock in Vosso watercourse, identifying threats and possible measures to save Vosso salmon.

On the basis of this work, Directorate of Nature Management initiated a 10 years’ project to save the stock of wild atlantic salmon in Vosso. Research results from this project are now summarized in the report titled "Rescue mission for Vosso salmon" by the Directorate of Environment.

The research activities in this project are coordinated by Dr. Bjørn T. Barlaup, Head of Research at LFI.
