The project invests the DNA analysis of salmonid alevins sampled from redds, and the analysis reveals the species, if it is brown trout or landlocked salmon. Other projects realise the marking of redds and sampling of alevins. In addition, the project funds travelling expenses and equipment expenses. With the results from DNA analysis, the project estimates the size of the spawning stocks of the two species and the length and timing of spawning period and emergence period. Finally, the microenvironments of redds of the two species are compared in co-operation with other projects.
