Linda Vikström
PhD student at the department of Wildlife, Fish, and Environmental Studies, currently working on aspects of migration behaviour of Salmonids in rivers.

Presentation

I started my PhD studies in June 2018 working on drivers behind migration behaviour of Atlantic salmon and sea trout in the coastal area of the Baltic Sea.
The goal of the project is to provide further knowledge in the field of fish migration, hopefully being able to aid future management of the populations and also to construct more effective fishways.

The project is funded by the Department of fish and environmental studies at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. It will be carried out in close connection with Vattenfall AB, Umeå University, SLU Aqua, Luleå Tekniska Högskola,  

Background

2011 - 2016 MSc in Biology and Forestry at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Sweden

My master thesis in Biology was a collaboration between SLU and Sweco on behalf of Skellefteå Kraft AB, where the goal was to evaluate a fish leading device installed in Sikfors hydroelectric power plant, Piteälven.
