Connectivity

Many fish species need to be able to move up and downstream in water ways and lakes. Their paths are currently hampered by ponds, power plants and other physical barriers in the aquatic environment.

 

​Our projects within this theme:

 

Strategy to recover connectivity

Development of a systematic strategy and toolbox on how to recover connectivity of rivers in the Northern Baltic Sea River Basin District.

 

Free migration passages for fish in a city context

Construction of fish passages and demonstration sites at Slottsbron and Falkenbergska kvarnen in Västerås.

 

Adaptation of hydropower to benefit endangered species

Adaptation of hydropower to reach good water status in rivers Rällsälven and Hedströmmen, protecting endangered Natura 2000 species.
