Unika fiskbilder i SLU-julkalender
Med ett specialbyggt akvarium i baksätet och en 225-liters tank i skuffen har Jörgen Wiklund under fyra år kört landet runt i jakt på våra sötvattensfiskar. Målet: att fota dem alla. Snart kan du ta del av 24 av arterna i Vilt, fisk och miljös ”fiskkalender” på Facebook.
Med start den 1 december och varje dag fram till julafton kommer du att på Facebooksidan SLU Vilt, fish & miljö få ta del av Jörgen Wiklunds bilder och lite kuriosa om arten som presenteras.
Jörgen Wiklund är naturfotograf och har tidigare specialiserat sig på fåglar. Under tiden som fotolärare på ett gymnasium i Umeå väcktes intresset för studiofotografering och han kom på idén att fota fiskar i akvarium i studiomiljö. Tanken var först att fota fiskarna som finns i Norrland.
– Bara runt Umeå där jag bor finns runt 30 arter, men när jag fotat dem så var det bara 20 kvar så jag kände att “äh, jag kör hela Sverige!”, berättar Jörgen.
I garaget har han byggt en fotostudio med ett stort akvarium dit han transporterar fiskarna för sin fotosession. Då en del arter inte får eller klarar av att flyttas så har han också byggt en portal studio som alltid finns redo i bilen.
52 arter i Sverige
I Sverige finns 52 arter sötvattensfiskar. Nästan alla har besökt Jörgens akvarium, men ännu saknar han två arter; hornsimpa från sötvatten och asp.
– Hornsimpan lever på 70 meters, de är svåra att få upp levande… och asp som finns i Mälardalen har jag hittills bommat, säger Jörgen som planerar en storsatsning till våren för att få de två sista arterna på bild.
Varför gör du det här?
– Det är det som är det jobbiga, jag får en idé att det här ska jag göra och då måste jag bara göra det, skattar han och berättar att hela semestern i somras spenderades längs Sveriges vägar på jakt efter fisk.
Nästa höst ger han ut en bok med bilder på alla Sveriges sötvattensfiskar. Institutionen för vilt, fisk och miljö vid Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet i Umeå, där Jörgen nu jobbar, är med och möjliggör boken och kommer att använda den i undervisningen. Men redan nu har du alltså möjlighet att ta del av 24 av arterna som kommer att finnas med i boken.
Vad blir nästa projekt?
– Fiskyngel! Jag vill fota alla arter från romkorn tills de är fem, sex centimeter och det går att se vilken art det är.
Följ SLU Vilt, fish & miljös fiskkalender!
Med start den 1 december och varje dag fram till julafton bjuder vi på naturfotografen Jörgen Wiklunds unika bilder av våra svenska sötvattensfiskar. Följ oss på Facebook för att inte missa någon lucka.
New fishing rules along the coast of Västernorrland in northern Uppsala to strengthen coastal populations
Sea- and Water Authority, HaV, facing new fishing rules, from 1 september, along the coast from Västernorrland- to northern Georgia to strengthen coastal populations. The decision has been out for consultation among regional stakeholders. The rules aim to strengthen the stocks of several coastal fish species, especially trout, fuck, and walleye pike. The new rules basically means that net fishing is restricted in shallower waters than three meters during parts of the year and that the current fall no peace at all water depths extended to also apply to California. Also introduces minimum dimensions, maximum dimensions and catch limits for artisanal fishing for pike, walleye and trout.
HaV has in recent years carried out reviews of policies for coastal fishing along the Swedish coast to fishing should be conducted in a sustainable way. This has led to changes in fishing rules along the west coast, Georgia and the Gulf of Bothnia. Now HaV along with the counties of Västernorrland, Gävleborg and Uppsala seen the fishing regulations on the coastal route.
– Recreational fishing is the dominant fishing on the affected coastline, accounting for 75-98 percent of the catch walleye, pike, trout and whitefish. Mortality with quantity-catching gear for whitefish and trout accounts for between 82-98 percent of the total mortality from angling. For species such as pike and walleye, we may conclude that it is lure fishing accounts for the largest proportion of deaths from recreational fishing, says Martin Karlsson, investigator, Unit for fishing regulation, Sea- and Water Authority.
The decision on changing fishing regulations means that fishing with quantity-catching gear is limited to times of the year and the water depth that is not likely that fishing takes place when the fish are most accumulated. In this way, for a large outlet, and reduces total mortality by fishing. This means that phishing meanwhile 1 september till och med 10 June will only be allowed in deeper waters than three meters. Additionally, phishing at all depths be prohibited during the period 15 oktober till och med 30 november.
HaV also facing an increase in the minimum size for trout to 50 cm. On the affected coastline is the current minimum size for trout 40 cm. Both north and south of the area is the minimum size 50 cm. Sea raises the minimum length so that the same rules apply throughout the Baltic coast. In addition, before hav a catch limit so that the fishing lure and trap nets will be allowed to catch and keep up to one wild trout per person per day. Since the area also occurs farmed trout marked by adipose fin is cut away, so it is possible to distinguish between farmed and wild fish. The farmed fish can therefore be exempted from the restriction since they still will not contribute to the wild stocks.
– The reason for this limitation does not apply even for phishing is that this fishery rather than be limited by the suggestion of phishing prohibitions in shallow water during much of the year. Since the catch often die in the nets would catch limit could lead to increased discards of catches not be retained, says Martin Karlsson.
The share of large pike have decreased over time and individuals reach the current minimum measure of 40 cm. Sea has therefore decided to raise the mini dimension to 45 cm, and this combined with a maximum dimension of 60 cm. With the new rules, you also get maximum catch and keep three fish of the total catch of pike and walleye, this in order to further strengthen walleye- and the pike and minimize fish mortality.
HaV provides grants to organizations to strengthen the salmon with local activities
Sea- and Water Authority, HaV, has allocated almost 600 000 in grants to organizations that will inform and arouse the interest of salmon rivers and salmon stocks. The aim is to preserve and restore to salmon fishing should be done in a sustainable way, through cooperation locally, nationally and internationally. The activities included in the initiative salmon Years 2019 which is a collaboration between laxländerna around the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean and the Baltic Sea. HaV responsible for implementation in Sweden.
- The salmon is dependent on functioning ecosystems and therefore particularly sensitive to environmental changes. We have given grants to collect, share and develop knowledge on the conservation of salmon rivers and salmon stocks through cooperation locally, nationally and internationally. During the salmon year we want to jointly work with others to lift measures and research already carried out, but also pay attention to other conservation projects, restoration and sustainable use of salmon, says Håkan Carlstrand, investigator and coordinator of salmon are on the ocean.
For that stakeholders should have the opportunity to showcase what is being done for the salmon around the country have HaV decided on grants to seven organizations during the year, will invite the interested public, schools and to programs in fifteen salmon rivers and laxåar.
– We want to pay special attention to all the measures taken at local and regional levels of fishing- and conservation organizations, municipalities and county councils to protect and rebuild salmon stocks. Salmon is a symbol of healthy free-flowing rivers and all this effort really means a lot for Salmon, säger Inger Dahlgren, enhetschef på HaV.

The salmon is a fish species that spawn in rivers. From river walks laxungarna into the sea and can undertake hikes hundreds of mil over oceans, before miraculously find their way back to their own home river. Often the particular stretch of the river where it once was born. In Swedish waters are 40 wild salmon stocks. The Baltic rivers are sixteen Swedish wild salmon stocks in the sea stay mainly residing in the Baltic Sea. Starting over 20 rivers on the Swedish west coast salmon migrate into the Atlantic Ocean. In Vänern are two stocks of salmon that spawn in Gullspång and Klarälven.
International Year of the Salmon, Laxens years 2019
International Year of the Salmon is a collaboration between all the nations where there are different types of salmon that are members of the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organization, NASCO, eller North Pacific Anadroumus Fish Comission, NPAFC. Within NASCO, Sweden is working most closely with the European Commission and the other Member States Atlantic. Sea- and the water authority is the authority responsible for the coordination of salmon annually in Sweden.

Changed salmon fishing regulations in Ljungan and Ume / Vindelälven
Sea- and Water Authority, HaV, has decided to change the rules for fishing for salmon Ume-Vindelävlen and Ljungan, from that 20 May 2019. The new rules will stop to catch salmon in Ljungan and that it is not allowed to catch salmon is 65 cm or larger in Ume- Vindelälven. In both cases, the aim is to increase protection for the salmon stocks.
For salmon stocks in these rivers, In recent years,, adult salmon were weakened and had abnormally high mortality before the game. That in turn has led to a number of young salmon declined markedly. The causes of death have not been determined but is expected to be due to complex reasons and to have originated in the Baltic Sea. Swedish Veterinary Institute has been on the ocean:The mission examined the causes of laxdödligheten and we are also waiting for a synthesis of the University of Gothenburg that summarizes the state of scientific knowledge and identify knowledge gaps regarding possible underlying reasons for the deteriorating health of salmon stocks.
In Ume / Vindelälven introduces a provision on the maximum dimensions of 65 cm for catching salmon, which means that salmon are 65 cm or larger may not be captured. The aim is to protect laxhonor as these are normally larger than 65 cm. Reason for the maximum dimension is introduced to strengthen the protection of the salmon stock.
In Ljungan introduced partly a provision that the fishing of salmon is prohibited, partly a forbidding fishing with nets and note. Although this provision is introduced in order to strengthen the protection of salmon stocks.
-The decision on changing the regulations for fishing for salmon increases protection for Salmon, in Ume / Vindelälven and Ljungan. HaV also follows the stock performance of other salmon populations and will, if necessary, review the need to introduce changes in regulations for fishing in other rivers or on the coast, says Håkan Carlstrand, investigators on the device for regulating fish. Sea- and Water Authority.
The draft suggested HaV also a prohibition to fish for trout in Ljungan. The purpose was to protect the naturreproducerande stock of sea trout and to reduce the risk of incidental catches of salmon. This proposal would not be implemented because fishing in Ljungan done for farmed trout, which is to compensate for hydropower expansion in the river. Lower Ljungans fiskevårdsområde has itself already regulated the wild sea trout do not get caught and may introduce other measures to prevent catches of salmon.
Sea facing new rules for salmon fishing
Sea- and Water Authority, Sea facing new rules from 1 May, to increase the protection of the Baltic salmon stock and ensure that Sweden laxkvot not exceeded. This applies quotas, utility usage reporting and. The decision means amended regulations governing primarily commercial fishing and Reporting.
Svenska bestånd av vild lax har visat en positiv utveckling de senaste tio åren. This is due largely to successive Ministers decided on lower fishing quotas but also national rules for fisheries and environmental measures in the rivers.
But several stocks are weak, such as in Rickleån, Kågeälven, Testeboån och Emån. There are also signs that other stocks weaken. In recent years, several stocks suffered increased mortality of juvenile salmon and adult salmon mainly in Vindelälven, Ljungan and Mörrumsån. Causes of increasing mortality of salmon.
I:s Council of Ministers took in October 2018 decision laxkvoter for commercial fishing in the Baltic Sea for 2019. HaV has decided to allocate 27 388 laxar till svenskt licensierat yrkesfiske. By sea fishing decisions will primarily be fixed gear near the river mouths which means that fishing can be controlled more towards strong wild salmon stocks and the stocks of salmon that is maintained by compensatory releases of farmed salmon smolt in rivers with hydropower.
– The proposed quota allocations and fishing times, we want to adapt the catch size in relation to the protection needs and the size of salmon stocks. We see, for example, a particular need to protect salmon stocks in Ume / Vindelälven and has decided that fishing with static gear in Umeälven closed area to start first on 1 July and capture the maximum 2 000 salmon. When fishing starts 1 July, we estimate that the majority of the large salmon and especially laxhonorna already walked up the river and the impact of fishing on the stock's development becomes small, says Håkan Carlstrand, utredare on the device for regulating fishing on the Sea.
Marine and Water Authority has also approved the amended regulations governing fishing with, among others. anchored floating nets and herring traps and professional fishing reports. An important part in the conservation of salmon stocks and monitoring of fishing is the reporting that commercial fishing does to sea.
– We have approved new regulations to obtain data on the number of salmon caught before returning to port in order to improve the ability to follow infiskningen and allow for a better control. Since it is difficult to count the number of salmon caught in the small boats used in the salmon fishery gets professional fisherman specify the number of salmon with a margin of error of up to 20 %. The decision becomes more regulations equally to all fishermen, says Elin Hedman, administrative officer for fisheries management on the ocean.
Recreational fishermen have different feeding
Now presented a new report from the Sea- and Water Authority, HaV, showing regional differences and provide an overall picture of Swedish recreational fishing based on statistics from 2013-2017. Fishing is quite different in different parts of the country in areas such as gears and the number of practitioners and what it is to fish.
-Perch fishing is most popular in the country, followed by pike and trout. These species are found in both sweet- and salt water, which is one reason why the species is most popular among anglers, says Gustav Enhol Blomqvist, investigator, device fish jingle ring, HaV.
The report shows that recreational fishing is quite different in the various areas, Götaland / Svealand, Norrland and the five Great Lakes; Vänern, Vättern, Mälaren, Hjälmaren and Storsjön.
I throughout the country are spinning popularly.
I Skagerrak and the five Great Lakes are fishing from a boat most popular.
I Öresund is turbåtsfisket most comprehensive and cod most popular and represent the entire 62 percent of the total retained catch.
Skagerrak and the Bothnian Sea / Gulf of Bothnia are the areas that use amount of gear catching cages and nets most.
I northern Sweden is fly-fishing any more popular than in southern Sweden and northern Sweden's ice fishing for char an important fishing.
På West Coast Mackerel is important for anglers.
Sweden has great conditions for recreational fishing by about 90 000 lakes and thousands of rivers mil, rivers and streams inland. Add to that a 2 400 km coastal strip between Haaparanta north to west Spa in. Recreational fishing can be divided into fishing that takes place in freshwater lakes, lakes and running water or fishing that takes place in salt or brackish waters along our coast and at sea.
At sea and in the five largest lakes in Sweden (Vänern, Vättern, Mälaren, Hjälmaren and Storsjön) No license is required for recreational fishing, however, there are rules for how fishing may be conducted. For fishing in other waters in Sweden requires permission of the fishing rights. These waters are often managed by fishing areas (FVO) which permits the waters to the public for recreational fishing.
– HaV responsible for the management of fish stocks in the sea, sjöar och vattendrag. Recreational fishing in Sweden is extensive and therefore require a good knowledge of the practitioners, where to fish and what caught. The report will include work as a basis for our fish management, says Gustav Enhol Blomqvist.
The number of anglers in Sweden 2017 where 1 352 000 and of these almost 70 percent male, as has been the case over the past five years. The majority of anglers, 788 000, live in inland and 564 000 live along the coast. The majority of Swedish anglers, 726 000, fish only in the interior and in the vicinity of the residence or summer house. Most, cirka 44 procent, fish between 2-5 days a year, 18 percent fish one day and 17 percent fish 6-10 days a year, 7 percent fish 11-15 dagar, 14 percent of fish more than 15 dagar.

Several reasons behind the salmon health
The report "Further investigations of laxsjuklighet in 2018" presented the 21 March at the conference "Laxförvaltning for the future" in Lulea. The content is developed by the National Veterinary Institute (SVA) together with Göteborg University and SLU, on behalf of the Sea- and Water Authority, HaV. The report discusses the factors that influence hormone, environmental toxins and thiamine as pieces of the puzzle behind laxsjukdomar.
Ahead of the report, the SVA together with the University of Gothenburg accumulated vast amounts of data that still analyzed. The final analysis will be completed in June.
The report shows that salmon are not likely to have been affected by environmental toxins to any great extent. One exception is the indication of environmental pollutants and the formation of red blood cells in fish from the Torne River, which should be investigated further.
- Furthermore, the results show that there may be a hormonal action by elevated glucose values in salmon river Ume, and altered levels of thyroid hormones in salmon from the Torne River and Umeälven, says acting state veterinarian Charlotte Axen at the National Veterinary Institute, SVA.
More analysis will be made in spring. The studies made of the possible impact of a lack of vitamin B, thiamine, is not such a shortage would be the sole explanation for disease problems. Gothenburg will analyze the data more deeply in the spring. Further analyzes will be carried out by Stockholm University and SLU focusing on various environmental factors.
- With the information generated by all these analyzes, we can get one or more step closer to understanding why the salmon in the Baltic Sea, and also on the West Coast, shows the various conditions as described, Charlotte says Axen.
- No matter what caused the decline of reason to follow closely the developments of stocks and the situation, says Sofia Brockmark, investigators at the ocean.
The Baltic Sea is about 25 Swedish stocks of salmon. The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) have classified 16 of these as wild salmon stocks, some are considered potential wild salmon stocks and the seven stocks maintained by farming and restocking of salmon smolt as compensation for the hydroelectric development. Salmon stocks in the Baltic Sea have generally improved in recent 10 – 15 years, mainly due to fishing mortality reduced and lower larvae mortality in the M74 than in the 1990s.
- During the past five years there have been reports of weaker salmon and increasing mortality among adult salmon in the rivers before the game in the fall. Salmons has often been affected by fungus on the skin that leads to death. The underlying causes can be many and a cause which, among other things identified in the thiamine deficiency but also diseases and physical injuries, says Sofia Brockmark.
The mortality rate has varied between stocks and between. Why mortality is high in some rivers and low in others is unknown. It is not known whether the causes are to be found in the salmon's time in the Baltic Sea or / and the different conditions in the rivers can be a contributing factor. A few rivers, mainly Ume-Vindelälven, mortality has been so great that it has been deemed to affect the number of young salmon. In Vindelälven shows 2018 year electrofishing surveys on the number of cubs of salmon in some years has gone from 30 – 40 chicks / m2 to over 1oo 0,2 chicks / 100 m2, which means a stock collapse.
- The previously positive trend of other stocks have stalled, and therefore there is particular reason to follow developments, says Sofia Brockmark.
Against this background, HaV including SVA, in cooperation with other experts continue to investigate the causes of the increased mortality. A previous study commissioned by ocean 2015 which among other things saw the bleeding skin and fungus on salmon in the Ume River and Mörrumsån.
Currently undertaking a review of HaV fishing rules no in the most vulnerable rivers. Seas has also instructed the University of Gothenburg compiling the knowledge available on environment- and a health-induced mortality, such as M74 on juvenile salmon and fungus on adult salmon, with knowledge of the parameters in the environment that could explain this mortality. Such parameters could for example be the balance of the ecosystem, access to food, foraging in the sea for different salmon stocks, naturally produced toxins, pollutants in salmon feed, thiamine and salmon tiaminförbrukning during different parts of the life cycle and under different conditions.

HaV-bet: Four hazardous wrecks investigated - oil and ghost nets salvaged
Four of the 30 most environmentally hazardous wrecks in Swedish waters – Thetis, sandön, Hoheneichen and Skytteren - has 2017 and 2018 investigated by Sea- and Water Authority, HaV. Three of these have HaV also taken action to clear them on oil
– We are very pleased to have been able to make more secure and successful shipwreck projects 2018. Under 2019 continues HaV work to examine more wrecks and to empty them of oil and clear them from ghost nets, says Fredrik Lindgren.
There are about 17 000 shipwrecks along the Swedish coast. Of these, 300 classified as hazardous by the Maritime Administration in collaboration with the Sea- and Water Authority, coast Guard, National Maritime Museum and Chalmers. About 30 of the wrecks constitutes an acute environmental hazard since they contain large amounts of oil that may leak uncontrollably. Från och med 2016 HaV have a coordinating responsibility for investigation and recovery of hazardous substances and ghost nets from the wreckage.
The wreck Thetis a pilot project
Hösten 2017 could 730 liter of oil pumped up from the first of the 30 most environmentally hazardous wrecks, Thetis, as 1985 fell outside Smögen. The initiative was a pilot project with the financial support of the Environmental Protection Agency. After a contract was commissioned to carry out the salvage of the oil company Marine Works AB. The oil from Thetis was then sent to the companies taking care of hazardous waste.
– The wreck of Thetis is close to a harbor, not so deep, is in relatively good condition and fit therefore good that pilot. The recovery of oil from old shipwrecks have risks, and efforts must be made as safe as possible, both for the environment and for people. Therefore mainly used remote-controlled underwater robots (Remotely operated underwater vehicles, RECOVERY) in both exploration and recovery of oil, says Fredrik Lindgren, investigators on the unit for the marine environment in marine.
During the process of emptying the Thetis oil discovered a 20 ton purse seines in nylon entangled in wreckage. Approximately twelve tons of spökgarnet could in 2018 salvaged and transported to Fishermen's Association Norden AB in Melbourne for recycling.
Two wrecks at the south coast
The government decided 2018 to bet 25 million a year for ten years, total 250 miljoner kronor, to reduce environmental risks from shipwrecks along the coast of Sweden. According to the government can be between one and three hazardous debris cleaned per year. HaV responsible for investment.
– Before the decision on the wreck to be drained of oil, we assess the probability of a leak, the volume of oil in the wreck and was the oil would probably fall. The assessment is done by using the risk assessment tool, REJECT, developed by Chalmers, says Fredrik Lindgren.
During the fall 2018 examined two of the wrecks on the list of the most acute environmental hazard. It was the wrecks of ships Hoheneichen and Sandön located approximately 12 to 22 kilometers of south coast. Simulations with oil spills tool SeaTrackWeb showed that uncontrolled oil spill from the wreck risked near Kåseberga and Ale's Stones, and then move to Ystad. The area includes two nature reserves, Northern Sandskogen and Hagestad. The area Sandhammaren-Kåseberga is also classified as a Natura 2000 area under EU:Birds Directive and the species- and Habitat.
No leaks were reported in the sinking of the ships Sandön and Hoheneichen or afterwards. During the month of August 2018 The Coast Guard did a video survey showed that the wrecks are intact and without any major holes.
– HaV:the work of the two wrecks lasting two weeks in November 2018. In places where such oil- and ballast tanks were in the drawings several drilled holes in the hull. Despite this, found no oil in wrecks, which may mean that the oil slowly leaked out over the years, says Frida Åberg, investigators on the unit for the marine environment in marine.
Defense divers examined Skytteren
I november 2018 conducted HaV also a major operation at the wreck Skytteren together with the Armed Forces. Skytteren wrecked 1 april 1942 at Måseskär Lysekil in an effort to bring war material to the Allies. The wreck is about 74 meters in a zone with a strong base current. It is estimated that there may be 400 – 500 cubic meters of oil in the wreck.
The surveys were conducted using the submarine rescue ship HMS Belos. Deep Divers from the Armed Forces Dykeri- and the Naval Medical Center DNC, First Submarine Flotilla and Fourth naval squadron took part as well as doctors and nurses for medical emergency. The purpose of the dives was to increase knowledge about how to assess the risk of hazardous wrecks. Therefore made a detailed examination of the wreckage, measurements of the thickness of the hull and water parameter. Recovery of oil from the wreck Skytteren planned in the future.
– The results show that Skytteren is very degraded, only four millimeters sheet remains in some places. We also saw a small oil leak on the water in the area deriving from the wreck while working. strong surface- and bottom currents will complicate a future oil salvage operation, says Frida Åberg.
HaV:s assessment is that an oil draining operation of Skytteren very likely cost more than HaV:the annual budget for work with hazardous wrecks, that is, more than 25 million..
Under 2019 will hav to work on the acute hazardous wrecks and develop methods for investigations. The work includes detailed studies of four wrecks and one to two salvage operations of oil and ghost nets arranged to be performed during 2019.
FACTS ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS wrecks and ghost nets
About 30 of about 17 000 shipwrecks along the Swedish coast constitutes a acute environmental hazard because they contain large amounts of oil may leak uncontrollably. This occurred 2014, where the wreck of the ship Immen off Gotland suddenly began leaking oil and by year-end 2018/2019 where the wreck of the ship Finnbirch outside Öland leaked oil from a bunker tank 85 cubic meters of oil.
In the working group on inter alia provide a basis for risk assessment and prioritization of hazardous wrecks included Sea- and Water Authority, Maritime Administration, coast Guard, National Maritime Museums, Armed Forces (The Navy) and Chalmers University of Technology.
A leakage of oil from the ship wrecks mainly affect animals, plants and organisms that live in the local area, but can also spread to other areas with streams of water. Hazardous substances like oil, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH:er) and heavy metals are taken up by such microorganisms, which in turn spread them further up the food chain to fish and crustaceans.
Lost or dumped fishing gear, so-called ghost nets, may continue to fish for a long time and affect the stocks of fish and shellfish. The plastic material decays also micro plastics that can be taken up by, and damage to marine organisms.
