Our society strive to obtain a high ecological status in Östra Lägern. This includes securing reproduction of the rare "River pearl clam" and arranging gravel beds and general restoration of feader streems for spawning Trout. .
Free passages for fish are now close to be at hand from Assjön via Västra and Östra Lägern thru Bulsjöån to Lake Sommen. All this thanks to a great job done by Tranås Energy, who owns the water power plants along the way. One obstacle remains to be dealt with - a damm at Oppeby kvarn. Once all paperwork is finished and apporved of, the buildingprocess can start - hopefully in the autunm 2023.
All in all migration of Trout and the other spices, will ensure genetic exchange between the former in locked populations, thus clearing the risk of degeneration and inbreeding.
