Marine behaviour and survival of salmonids (38258)

Project Details


Considering the importance of Danish salmonids, and the fact that they spend most of their lifetime at sea, it is striking that our knowledge on the survival and whereabouts of sea trout in marine environments is so limited.

While the general population development for salmonids in Denmark is positive, there may be potential for further improvement in population status with an increased understanding of the marine phase.

This project aims to advance our understanding of salmonids at sea including behaviour and survival. This is accomplished by using various types of telemetry, chemical fingerprinting and physiological measurements, to address both more basic biological and behavioural aspects, as well as estimate survival at particular life stages hypothesized to limit population size.

The project is funded by the Danish Rod and Net Fishing License Funds.
