The Department of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies, at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), operates a number of acoustic telemetry networks both nationally and internationally. We consider some of our networks as permanent, as we aim to keep some infrastructure in place indefinitely. That said, the exact position and number of receivers will change over time. Here in the Gulf of Bothnia, we have around 50 receivers listening at 69 kHz. This work is led primarily by Dr. Gustav Hellström and it is carried out in collaboration with governmental agencies, e.g. County Administrative Board of Västerbotten County, and various stakeholders.
