Species Notes for this Location:
Canadian beavers were introduced to Finland in 1937 as a part of the program to reintroduce the exterminated European beaver. The introductions were successful in eastern Finland where two pairs of Castor canadensis were released (Lahti and Helminen 1974). From eastern Finland, the beavers were later translocated to the northern, northeastern and central parts of Finland (Nummi, 2006).
Management Notes for this Location:
A special licence for hunting C. canadensis is no longer required in Finland (Nummi, 2006).
