We want to help fish migrate more freely. We remove migration obstacles and experiment new innovations
aiming at revitalising fish stocks across Finland.
The waters do not flow in rivers as before. Due to hydropower, rivers have been sprouted and dammed, which has affected the flows and, at the same time, has changed the home environment of migrating fish.
We believe that in revitalising migrating fish stocks the key is to restore fish stocks where there are the best conditions to their natural succes. Means should be designed to best suit each water course and the effectiveness of the actions should be carefully evaluated. There is also plenty of room for new ideas in addition to fishing transplanting and fish ladders.
With our Migrating Fish Program, we want to help fish migrate more freely: we remove obstacles to fish migration and try out new innovations to revitalise fish stocks across Finland.
