As part of the SAMARCH project we are estimating the marine survival rate of the salmon populations in the Channel’s five salmon index rivers, the Frome and Tamar in the UK and Scorff, Bresle and Oir in France.

Below are three salmon that made it back to the River Frome from their marine journey to their feeding grounds off the North Atlantic, around Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

The picture below shows three salmon going through the fish counter on the lower Frome at East Stoke:
