Before and after river restoration of Bränningenån

One of the rivers that is a part of the RETROUT restorations project is located in Södertälje municipality, south of Stockholm, Sweden. This area was identified to have the potential for being a suitable mating ground for the sea trout. For the fish to be able to enter the river some obstacles needed to be removed and a more beneficial habitat had to be constructed. This was done in Bränningeån from the autumn of 2018 to January of 2019 and resulted in a scenery that can be enjoyed by both fish and human.
