• Bias in estimates of electrofishing capture probability of juvenile Atlantic salmon 

      Hedger, Richard David; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Sandlund, Odd Terje; Saksgård, Laila M.; Ugedal, Ola; Bremset, Gunnbjørn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      We evaluated the effect of the total number of passes used, and the application of block nets, on multi-pass electrofishing removal sampling for estimating juvenile Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) abundance and body size ...
    • Density independent use of shallow riverine areas in juvenile Atlantic salmon 

      Puffer, Michael; Berg, Ole Kristian; Hamnes, Frøydis Bolme; Bentsen, Vidar; Koch, Wouter; Ugedal, Ola; Forseth, Torbjørn; Arnekleiv, Jo Vegar; Einum, Sigurd (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Habitat use of aquatic organisms is essential to evaluate effects of many environmental challenges like effects of hydro-power regulation, where stranding may occur under hydropeaking (rapid dewatering of shallow river ...
    • Effects of water level regulation in alpine hydropower reservoirs: an ecosystem perspective with a special emphasis on fish 

      Hirsch, Philipp E.; Eloranta, Antti; Amundsen, Per-Arne; Brabrand, Åge; Charmasson, Julie; Helland, Ingeborg Palm; Power, Michael John; Sanchez-Hernandez, Javier; Sandlund, Odd Terje; Sauterleute, Julian Friedrich; Skoglund, Sigrid Østrem; Ugedal, Ola; Yang, Hong (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Sustainable development of hydropower demands a holistic view of potential impacts of water level regulation (WLR) on reservoir ecosystems. Most environmental studies of hydropower have focused on rivers, whereas environmental ...
    • Hydropower impacts on reservoir fish populations are modified by environmental variation 

      Eloranta, Antti; Finstad, Anders Gravbrøt; Helland, Ingeborg Palm; Ugedal, Ola; Power, Michael (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Global transition towards renewable energy production has increased the demand for newand more flexible hydropower operations. Beforemanagement and stakeholders can make informed choices on potential mitigations, it is ...
    • Interactions between local population density and limited habitat resources determine movements of juvenile Atlantic salmon 

      Teichert, Maxim; Foldvik, Anders; Einum, Sigurd; Finstad, Anders Gravbrøt; Forseth, Torbjørn; Ugedal, Ola (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Competition for limited resources and the resulting density-dependent processes are key factors in driving stream salmonid population dynamics. Here we test for the combined effects of density and shelter availability on ...
    • Modelling climate change effects on Atlantic salmon: Implications for mitigation in regulated rivers 

      Sundt-Hansen, Line Elisabeth Breivik; Hedger, Richard David; Ugedal, Ola; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Finstad, Anders G.; Sauterleute, Julian Friedrich; Tøfte, Lena S.; Alfredsen, Knut; Forseth, Torbjørn (Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Climate change is expected to alter future temperature and discharge regimes of rivers. These regimes have a strong influence on the life history of most aquatic river species, and are key variables controlling the growth ...
    • Modelling the effect of hydropeaking‐induced stranding mortality on Atlantic salmon population abundance 

      Hedger, Richard David; Sauterleute, Julian Friedrich; Sundt-Hansen, Line Elisabeth Breivik; Forseth, Torbjørn; Ugedal, Ola; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Bakken, Tor Haakon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Studies of hydropeaking‐induced stranding mortality on fish populations have been confined to analysis of empirical data and/or short‐term hydraulic‐habitat modelling of individual events and are thus limited as to how ...
    • Relationship between marine growth and sea survival of two anadromous salmonid fish species 

      Jensen, Arne Johan; Finstad, Bengt; Fiske, Peder; Forseth, Torbjørn; Rikardsen, Audun H.; Ugedal, Ola (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      This study found empirical evidence supporting the “growth–survival” paradigm in the marine phase of Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus) and brown trout (Salmo trutta). The paradigm postulates that larger or faster-growing ...
