This project investigated the movement behavior, hindrance time, and survival of downstream migrating adult Atlantic salmon within a fragmented section of Klarälven River. Receivers were placed throughout the lower 80 km of river, with one high residency (HR) receiver array within the fore-bay of Deje hydro-power station. 40 adult Atlantic salmon were tagged with V9 pressure sensor tags.
