Preparations are well under way for the Tweed Salmon Smolt tracking project. Tracking receivers are in now in place and tagging of pre-smolts will start as soon as the river drops down this week. The project will help us to understand how many Salmon smolts successfully make it to the estuary and where any losses take place.
With our 50 tags now sponsored, we have now ordered another 10 tags: the larger the sample size, the better.
Still Time To Sponsor A Smolt:
