Result: Abundance of sea trout spawners and parr

Data: Abundance of sea trout spawners and parr


In total, data was available from 240 sites in about 120 streams and rivers for period 2012-2014. ICES sub-divisions 21 to 32 are represented. At least ten sites are included from each of the ICES sub-divisions 25, 27, 30, 31 and 32.

Due to continuous concerns about the state and information available on sea trout in the Baltic Sea, a Study Group on Data Requirements and Assessment Needs for Baltic Sea Trout (SGBALANST) was established by ICES to work for a period of two years to identify a common classification system of habitats between countries (ICES 2011).
