Last week, a translocation measure of adult mussels from the streams Bråån and Tommarpsån to the habitat restored rivers Klingavälsån and Fyleån has been started. Our aim is to get more information about the performance of adult mussels in the new rivers. Therefore, we collected mussels from two high-density mussel populations and tagged each individual mussel before translocation. We will follow the mussels over the whole season and investigate how much they move, which micro-habitat they prefer and how they aggregate within each other.

Greetings!
