Achanalt Smolt Trap Assembly

The Achanalt smolt trap on the River Bran has been assembled and is ready for this year’s smolt run.  The trap catches the entire smolt run of the River Bran. Smolts are transported by road, past an impassable downstream obstruction at Luichart Dam and then released below the lowest hydro dam on the Conon system.  Returning adults are able to pass upstream through  the hydro dams and return to the Bran to spawn.
