The Index Project

The Index Project

The river Mörrum has in conjunction with the rivers Vindel, Sävar and Torne been classed as an “index river” for Baltic salmon. This is by far our largest, most important and most laborious project.

The main aim of this project is the collection of data correlating the status of the remaining stocks of wild salmon, assessing their behavior and furthering our understanding of them. We also seek to improve the statistics that are used as the basis for (ICES) prognosis regarding the development of wild salmon in the Baltic. The running of and financing of this project in cooperation with SLU, Vattenfall, EON, Sveaskog, Vindelns fiskeråd and effected local councils that are being funded through EU funds.
