Stream restoration

Apart from four decades of stream restoration efforts in Finland, the knowledge of their effects on stream functioning and biota are vague. There is a great need for research efforts to gain sound information on both in-stream and catchment-scale restoration measures and their impacts.


Improve knowledge on the effects of stream restorations to result in effective restoration practices in the future.

Impact of research

Practical management of streams and their fish populations will be based on scientific background knowledge.
