Aberdeen 2017: Effect of marine dredging on the behaviour of returning Atlantic salmon
Newton, M., Honkannen, H., Adams, C., (2017) Fine scale behaviour of adult Atlantic salmon in relation to marine noise.

Availability: Unrestricted after moratorium period
Data are initially restricted, but the access condition relaxes to academic or unrestricted once a specified period of time after an event (such as collection, publication, completion of QC procedures or project cessation) has elapsed

A vemco VPS array of 40 receivers was deployed to monitor fish movements in a 5 square kilometre area out with a harbour development. Sound monitoring of dredging occurring in the vicinity will be compared to fish behaviour to determine if there is an effect. Fish were tagged with depth and temperature sensor tags also.
