Did you know that sea trout spawns practically in the middle of the city of Oulu?
In 2017 a project was begun on the streams of Hupisaaret in Oulu to ro rehabilitate them into spawning and fingerling areas for migratory fish. The project has significantly improved the ecological state of the area and has now brought the trouts right next to the city center, offering people a chance to observe them spawn.
The life cycle of a sea trout is fascinating: even though it grows and spends most of its life at open sea it always breeds in running water. Would you like to learn more about sea trout's life and possibly see them spawning?
In October we will organize a weekly event at evening dusk for observing sea trout spawning. After booking you will receive information via e-mail on the meeting spot close to the city park at Hupisaaret (Ainolan puisto). From there we will walk to the streams of Hupisaaret where our guide will narrate on the trout's life and offers the group lamps for the observation of spawning trout.
Please note that sea trouts can be whimsical and that we cannot guarantee sightings.
