The spawning of brown trout has started. The water level in the spawning rivers is almost twenty centimetres higher than last year. There were some novelties this year too in the installation and the sound needs some adjustment.
For the salmonids the most important activities of the year have started and so we try to share this with all nature friends.
In 2014 and 2015 we had GoPro adventure cameras which we had the chance to use thanks to GoPro Eesti OÜ and director Raido Subi. Heartfelt thanks! For 2016 we looked for an alternative. The choice fell on the video camera Canon HV20E with WD-H43 wide angle converter lent to us for the purpose by Andres Marcus Franciscus Reinart .
The computer encoding of the video stream was supplemented by Urmas Lett, Eenet.
The transmission network was set up and the ”transmission threads” in Põlulas joined up by Ivo Kivinurk and Andigo Eesti OÜ.
Camera settings were made by Andri Puusepp, sound Alo Jaanivald.
The overall solution is supervised by Tiit Lepik; it is presented more in detail on the ITrottid home page.
For the lighting settings we were supported by the knowledge and experiences of filmmaker Rein Maran, Gaviafilm.
For the field location and the settings for the video image we were assisted by Kaido Haagen (www.kaidohaagen.com), whose underwater photography many of us know.
Every year we have been generously helped by the RMK Põlula Fish Breeding Centre specialists Kunnar, Ene, Ivar ja Heino.
The events on camera are carefully observed by the LK forum.
Looduskalender keeps an eye on what goes on, to present the way of life of brown trout as well as the other creatures that we may meet in camera view.
Events today were recorded by IceAge LK forum
As we know, the female digs the spawning nest. The male fertilizes the eggs and tries to keep competitors away. In the video we see their actions and differences between them.
