Vindel River LIFE

The Vindel River LIFE project was a collaboration between Umeå University, the Ume/Vindel River Fishery Advisory Board, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management. The project ran from 2010 until October 2015, and aimed to restore tributaries to the Vindel River that had been negatively affected by timber floating so as to recreate a more diverse aquatic environment favorable to plants and animals. In total, 66 kilometers of rapids in 26 tributaries within the Vindel River system Natura 2000 area have been restored
