Beaver dams in salmon and sea-trout rivers in Belarus

Beaver dams prevent salmon from reaching their spawning areas and are a main problem in most of the salmon and sea-trout rivers in Belarus. Neman Environment Group in Belarus decided, in co-operation with authorities, to remove beaver dams to increase the available spawning habitat to adult salmonids. With help from volunteers from the fishing club “Perekat” from Minsk, five actions have been organised on the Tartak, Senkanka and Dudka rivers, tributaries in the Nemunas/Neris river system.
