Fish and wildlife management

Fish and wildlife management can be improved by animal ecology research. At SLU, the research includes wildlife dynamics connected to feeding, ecological aspects on animal transfers and feeding, interactions between animals and plants, the effects of climate change on animals, humans and ecosystems. In the management hunting and fishing is included.

Fler men mindre kräftor i Vättern och Hjälmaren

The number of signal crayfish is increasing in Sweden's largest lakes: Lake Vänern, Lake Vättern, Lake Hjälmaren and Lake Mälaren. But in several of the lakes, the proportion of small crayfish is

Hållbart fiske kräver djupare kunskap om fiskpopulationer

To ensure sustainable fishing we need to know how large the fish populations are, and understand their dynamics. In his thesis, Stefan Skoglund at SLU has developed methods that increase our

SLU researchers track giant deep-sea sharks – an important step towards conservation

For the first time, researchers track the threatened deep-sea shark, the Greenland shark, in Swedish waters. These sharks can live for hundreds of years and they are threatened by both fishing and

SLU söker sportfiskare som vill fiska för forskning

Some species of fish, such as pike and trout, are difficult to catch with the nets and fyke nets normally used in fish monitoring. Researchers at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences now

Having good neighbours and few top predators make predatory fish populations more resilient

A regime shift is gradually spreading through the archipelagos of the Swedish Baltic Sea coast, where shallow bays, previously dominated by pike and perch have one by one become dominated by one of

Nytt forskningsprojekt skall bidra till friskare livsmiljöer i Kattegatt och Skagerrak

Despite the entry into force of the EU Habitats Directive more than 30 years ago, several marine habitats and species still do not meet the directive's objective of favourable conservation status. An
