Sponsor tracking a salmon smolt on the Tweed

In effort to maximise the number of salmon smolts that reach the sea, the Tweed Foundation will be using acoustic tracking to answer some key questions: 

  • How many smolts make it to sea
  • How barriers in the river prevent smolts from completing their journey downstream
  • Where smolts get lost in our river system
  • How river levels affect the smooth passage of our smolts’ journey out to sea

If you would like to support this research by sponsoring an acoustic tracker, contact the Tweed Foundation.
