Salmon spawning

Statkraft is stocking roe, juveniles and fish as well as improving fish habitats and spawning areas. In Norway, the long-term goal is to achieve self-sustaining fish populations, where feasible.

During the recent refurbishment of the Røssåga hydropower plant, a 650m stretch of the river was restored to its former state, offering better salmon spawning sites as well as a chance for hikers to access a previously inaccessible area. Following the refurbishment, a 40 per cent improvement in salmon spawning rates was recorded.
