Salmon and freshwater pearl mussel in the Lillpite River

On behalf of the association “Lillpiteälvsgruppen”, an eDNA survey with multi-species analyses of fish and mussels is being conducted. A total of 13 locations in the Lillpite River and its estuary are sampled. The purpose of the study was to examine the overall fish and mussel community, with a specific focus on salmon and freshwater pearl mussels, as well as the impact of fish migration barriers on the distribution of these species. The data may provide a basis for identifying suitable conservation and protection measures.
