• Can Energy Depletion of Wild Atlantic Salmon Kelts Negotiating Hydropower Facilities Lead to Reduced Survival? 

      Baktoft, Henrik; Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Szabo-Meszaros, Marcell; Silva, Ana T.; Riha, Milan; Økland, Finn; Alfredsen, Knut; Forseth, Torbjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Repeat spawners constitute an important component of Atlantic salmon populations, but survival of post-spawning individuals (kelts) are often compromised by anthropogenic structures such as hydropower plants (HPPs). Potential ...
    • Early marine migration of European silver eel (Anguilla anguilla) in Northern Norway 

      Davidsen, Jan Grimsrud; Finstad, Bengt; Økland, Finn; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak; Mo, Tor Atle; Rikardsen, Audun H. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
    • Heart rate and swimming activity as indicators of post-surgical recovery time of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) 

      Føre, Martin; Svendsen, Eirik; Økland, Finn; Gräns, Albin; Alfredsen, Jo Arve; Finstad, Bengt; Hedger, Richard David; Uglem, Ingebrigt (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Background Fish telemetry using electronic transmitter or data storage tags has become a common method for studying free-swimming fish both in the wild and in aquaculture. However, fish used in telemetry studies must be ...
    • Heart rate and swimming activity as stress indicators for Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) 

      Svendsen, Eirik; Føre, Martin; Økland, Finn; Gräns, Albin; Hedger, Richard David; Alfredsen, Jo Arve; Uglem, Ingebrigt; Rosten, Carolyn; Frank, Kevin; Erikson, Ulf Gøran; Finstad, Bengt (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      We investigated the relationship between telemetry measurements of heart rate and swimming activity and the physiological status in farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) to assess the potential to use telemetry measurements ...
    • Modellering av gjellealuminium. Aluminiumspåslag på gjellene til laksesmolt og betydningen dette kan ha for utvandringen 

      Diserud, Ola Håvard; Kroglund, Frode; Teien, Hans-Christian; Tjomsland, Torulv; Økland, Finn (NINA rapport;773, Research report, 2012)
      Etter kalking av Storelva i Holt har utvandringen av smolt vært betydelig, mens fangstene av laks i elva fortsatte å være lave (Kroglund mfl. 2011c). I 2005 ble det observert smolt i dårlig form og uten fluktatferd i ...
    • Modelling mitigation measures for smolt migration at dammed river sections 

      Szabo-Meszaros, Marcell; Forseth, Torbjørn; Baktoft, Henrik; Fjeldstad, Hans-Petter; Silva, Ana T.; Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Økland, Finn; Uglem, Ingebrigt; Alfredsen, Knut (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      There is no generic solution to establish safe passage of downstream migrating fish passed hydropower facilities and mitigation measures are species‐ and site‐specific. Development of solutions is thus often based on “trial ...
    • Validation of a Swimming Direction Model for the Downstream Migration of Atlantic Salmon Smolts 

      Szabo-Meszaros, Marcell; Silva, Ana T.; Bærum, Kim Magnus; Baktoft, Henrik; Alfredsen, Knut; Hedger, Richard David; Økland, Finn; Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Fjeldstad, Hans-Petter; Calles, Olle; Forseth, Torbjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Fish swimming performance is strongly influenced by flow hydrodynamics, but little is known about the relation between fine-scale fish movements and hydrodynamics based on in-situ investigations. In the presented study, ...
