The Sea Trout Project - annual report 2022

Our current knowledge about sea trout in Faroese lakes and ocean is limited. In collaboration with the Faroese Aquaculture Association, the Sea Trout Project aims to build new, basic knowledge about sea trout with an emphasis on these issues:

- To determine the time when smolt ventures to sea.
- To highlight the condition of the smolt with respect to length, weight, physical appearance and age.
- To compare the travel pattern to sea with respect to ocean temperatures and currents.
- To produce adequate procedures for collecting mature sea trout and, then, to explain possible differences in well-being and the composition of sea trout over a number of years.

The project is divided into two parts:
1) to determine when sea trout smolt swims to sea and

2) the well-being of adult sea trout between years.
