Research Inventory

Research Inventory

The Inventory of Research Relating to Salmon Mortality in the Sea (the Inventory) was established in 2002 and is updated annually. It is a tool that may be used in the development of research priorities for potential funding and in better co-ordinating existing research efforts. Projects in the Inventory are allocated to one of the following five topic areas:

  • Long term monitoring: e.g. time-series of marine survival/growth estimates;
  • Life history/biological processes: e.g. freshwater factors; pre-fishery-recruitment factors;
  • Distribution/migration in the sea: e.g. post-smolt surveys; migratory behaviour;
  • Development of methods: e.g. post-smolt survey methods; electronic tag technology; and
  • Specific natural and anthropogenic factors: e.g. fish farms; predation; obstructions.

Full Inventories, from 2002 to 2019 are shown below. Following a review in 2020, the Board agreed that ‘a single spreadsheet be posted so that users can more easily interrogate the Inventory,’ ICR(20)16.
