New article: Pike wetlands – do they have any importance for the Baltic Sea coastal area?

Pike is one of Sweden’s most common predatory fish with an important role to play in the coastal ecosystem. Unfortunately, pike stocks in the Baltic Sea have declined in recent decades. Can pike wetlands, or ‘pike factories’, help strengthen the pike stock along the Baltic Sea coast?

That is a question that Petter Tibblin, who is a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Biology and Environmental Science at Linnaeus University, investigates. Petter is project manager, together with Professor Per Larsson, for the project Pike wetlands – do they have any importance for the Baltic Sea coastal area? which is funded by BalticSea2020. In an interview Petter tells us how pike wetlands work and why it is so important that we maintain existing wetlands and watercourses. And of course, we will hear how the project progress!
