EAA Sweden, SportFiskarna is indeed conducting 3 projects aimed at the effective restoration of 3 Swedish rivers: Forsmarksån, Trödjeån and Hamrångeån. These 3 projects are due to improve the ecological status of the rivers by restoring their flows.

Focusing on the Forsmark project, which has been planned for many years, its purpose is to create free migration routes by mitigating the existing barriers around the old Forsmark mill. As such, with the support of local authorities, the County Administrative Board of Uppsala, the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management and Forsmark’s power group, the goal will be to tackle the migratory barriers present in the area to allow the fish populations like trout to benefit from better conditions in the water system all the way to the coast.

In Trödjeån, Sportfiskarna recovered around 10 adult trouts and will continue restoring large parts of the river. In addition, in addressing migration barriers near the sea, SportFiskarna has effectively paved the way for continued work on higher-up barriers within the Hamrångeån system.
 
These initiatives are one of many examples of anglers’ work across Europe for the restoration of rivers and river flows.
