Vidar Wennevik, Kjell R. Utne, Geir H. Bolstad and John F. Strøm participated at this international meeting aiming to identify data and ideas for further work on survival and distribution of Atlantic salmon at sea.
The workshop was arranged 24-28 June 2019 at the ICES headquarters in Copenhagen in Denmark.
Geir presented the SeaSalar project and gave an overview of salmon scale data, abundance of adult salmon to Norwegian rivers, and data on marine mortality from tagging programs based on PIT-tagging and Carlin tagging. He also presented the EcoEvoGene project.
Kjell gave an overview of available data on survey catches of post-smolts at sea, other marine pelagic species and zooplankton.
John presented data on migrations of Atlantic salmon at sea from the tagging program using pop up satellite archival tags and other data storage tags.
We are looking forward to further international collaboration on these themes
