I would like to invite you to participate in my study “Investigating social, cultural, and ecological benefits of freshwater pearl mussels and salmonid fishes in rivers”. This survey is being conducted by Cornelya Klütsch, a research scientist from NIBIO Svanhovd interested in freshwater species. Completion of the survey takes about 15 minutes.
You can participate in the survey here: Survey link
The purpose of this survey is to explore the importance of different uses and benefits of freshwater species to human well-being: the freshwater pearl mussel and salmonid fishes like Atlantic salmon and brown trout. The information gathered by this survey will help us to understand how the public perceives river ecosystems and some of the species that live in them. Therefore, some questions will repeatedly be asked for the different species. The information gathered may inform conservation and natural resource management strategies.
The participation in this survey is entirely voluntary and anonymous. All individual results will remain confidential and you are not required to give your name or contact details. Further, withdrawal from the survey is possible at any point. At the end of the survey, you will be asked to confirm that you wish to submit the survey, clicking FINISH will end the survey.
If you have any questions about this survey, please contact me: email@example.com. This survey may include questions/topics you are not necessarily familiar with; however, even not knowing gives us important insights!
