    This project concludes studies started during a 3-year project already reported to Naturvårdsverket. Recent unreported achievements include a phD project, 16 scientific manuscripts, 12 conference contributions and 10 popular papers. Results and management implications from these studies are summarized in this report. We highlight a previously overlooked potential conflict between fish stocking and duck management. We argue that the tools necessary for adopting an adaptive management of Swedish dabbling ducks are available, and that the success of such a paradigm shift in game management is enhanced if also programs are put in place to monitor changes in breeding population size and annual breeding success. Experiments and descriptive studies indicate that mallards are not affected by moderate changes in the arrival of spring, and that there is little duckling-food prey synchrony to become potentially mis-matched. We also argue it is important to continue monitoring avian influenza in wild ducks in Sweden.
