Missing Salmon - does their DNA hold the answer?

Project Description

The ability to tag and track individual salmon will uncover where and when salmon are going missing on their journey downstream…. But understanding why they disappear is more difficult. This project will be a collaborative project between the University of Hull, the Atlantic Salmon Trust (AST) and the Scottish Centre for Ecology and the Natural Environment (SCENE) at the University of Glasgow, and will use genetic and phenotypic analysis of salmon samples to address questions about the reasons they go missing.
