The final result for our shells sample project

Altaelva151015
In Alta river the percentage of submitted shell samples shows 2.9% of farmed salmon in the entire period. The percentage of wild fish is 96.0%.

In Repparfjord river the percentage of submitted shell samples shows 1.2% of farmed salmon in the entire period. The percentage of wild fish is 98.6%.

We want to thank all the fishermen in both rivers that have submitted shell samples in the salmon season. This gave NINA a good foundation to work with so we could present the most accurate result.

The project is a collaboration between NINA, ALI, Vest -Finnmark Jakt og Fiske, Cermaq, Grieg Seafood and NRS. This is the third year the project is implemented. The results of the collected shells samples tells us what proportion of the submitted samples of farmed salmon, and not the situation in the river as a whole.
