Summary

The project surveys the spawning success of landlocked Atlantic salmon and brown trout in a new reproduction channel, Laurinvirta, in the River Pielisjoki. The redds are counted and marked after the spawning period and embryo samples are taken taken from redds in spring, to identify the species, salmon or trout, later in dna analysis. Thus, the start of natural reproduction of the two species is estimated in the new habitat.
