Keywords:

  • ecological connectivity in river restoration;
  • flow regulation, interrupting ecological connectivity in riverine landscapes;
  • intact ecological connectivity - open exchange pathways for matter, energy and organisms;
  • passage and attraction efficiencies - measured for two passageways at Finsjö;
  • female salmonids, choosing Redd sites - of substrate composition, water depth and water velocity;
  • downstream migration;
  • nature-like passageways at Finsjö - longitudinal connectivity for salmonids in River Emån;
  • oversize nature-like passageways and spill water - attracting fish away from passageways;
  • attaining functional lotic system - with intact longitudinal and vertical connectivity
