Atlantic Salmon Trust

Moray Firth Tracking Project Underway

Matt Newton of the Atlantic Salmon Trust gets the Moray Firth Tracking Project underway today with the deployment of receivers that will shortly listen for salmon smolts tagged with acoustic tracking devices.
Over the course of three years this project, the largest of its kind ever undertaken in Europe will help to find out where and why Atlantic salmon are dying as they migrate down seven major rivers in the Moray Firth, out through the estuaries and for up to the first 100 km of their oceanic migration. In 2019 the work will tell us where these fish are dying, so that we may focus our attention to find out what is killing them and how we can practically help more survive.
