Specialist facilities

  • two research vessels are available within the organisation (Swedish National Board of Fisheries), however they are mainly used by the Institute of Marine Research (Lysekil)
  • experimental facilities in Älvkarleby; an experimental brook (120 m), an enclosed area of River Dalälven (400 m), a large indoor flow tank and a number of tanks and basins of different sizes.
  • Aquaculture facilities (for salmonids) at both Älvkarleby and Kälarne (Northern Sweden).
  • a flexible technological hall in Drottningholm were fish can be kept and raised in a number of basins and tanks fed with freshwater at different temperatures
  • a number of outdoor ponds in Drottningholm fed with water from Lake Mälaren
  • a Fish Ageing laboratory, mainly dealing with perch, roach, pikeperch, whitefish, eel etc (using e.g. a sawing technique when preparing thin sections from otoliths)
  • a Fish Genetics laboratory, using microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA markers to study the population genetic structure of different fish and crayfish species. We also use molecular markers to access parentage in experimental studies of domestication effects in salmonid fish. We have adopted the latest technology within this field and have a yearly genotyping capacity of approximately 70.000 genotypes.
  • A national responsibility for several data bases on recruitment, fish communities in lakes, in streams etc., with reference to the Water Framework Directive and to e.g. the EG-Project FAME.
  • Descriptive and experimental work in full scale in lakes and streams on e.g. the effect and importance of introduced fish and food organisms.
