Marine Scotland has established a programme of research to develop a juvenile assessment method that can be used to determine the status of salmon populations at a range of spatial scales. The National Electrofishing Programme for Scotland (NEPS) provides the electrofishing data required to support this work. NEPS has been designed using a stratified,unequal probability, generalised random tessellation stratified (GRTS) sample.

An overview of the network design is provided here:
