Abstract

The social status of hatchery-reared juveniles of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar at the age of 11-19 months in conditions of lack of shelters was investigated experimentally. It was demonstrated that biochemical differentiation in such juveniles begins at the age of 13 months-one month before the...

Abstract

We constructed a Lagrangian (individual-based) model of the behaviour of Atlantic salmon in sea-cages. The behaviour of individual fish was affected by a set of environmental factors and the other individuals in the population. The model was based on behavioural parameters derived from literature...

Agonistic behaviour, dominance, distance to nearest...

Abstract

Low temperature treatment was used to manipulate the growth rates of juvenile Atlantic salmon in the spring and the development of fin damage was followed in tagged individuals. Fin damage did not develop until mid-summer, possibly because of a qualitative change in the nature of aggressive...

Abstract

Total aggression and individual behavioural traits of equal-sized juveniles of farmed Atlantic salmon selected for 5 generations in the Norwegian Breeding Programme for Salmonids and a wild strain originating from the River Rauma, Norway, were compared in pure (10 fish) and mixed (5 + 5 fish)...
