Original versionThis report is not to be cited without prior reference to the authors
Simulated escapes of farmed salmon from netpens are done. Migratory behaviour and routes are studied by combining acoustic tagging and standard tagging - release methodology. A prototype of a recapture trap has been preliminary tested. Gillnets have also been used during recapture trials. Results indicate seasonal differences in migratory behaviour and consequently a need for adaptations of recapture strategies relative to this behaviour.
