Removing escaped farmed fish from spawing stock

Project Department: Uni Research Environment (group: LFI - freshwater biology) period: 01.09.07 - 31.12.18

About the project

We observe escaped farmed salmon in rivers and use various techniques and tools (harpoons, fish nets and landing nets) to remove escaped fish from from the spawning stock.

This activity has been mainly carried out in Hordaland county, with main focus on Hardanger and Sunnhordland areas, but is also carried out in other rivers in Western Norway.

To the right: removing escaped farmed salmon in Sunnhordland.
