Abstract

In species with indeterminate growth, differential growth rates can lead to animals adopting alternative reproductive tactics such as sneak-guard phenotypes, which is partially predicted by variation in growth during the juvenile life-history stage. To investigate sources of growth variation, we...

Abstract

Salmonids are characterized by alternative reproductive tactics, which can lead to an asymmetry in relatedness among offspring within nests and consequently the benefit of discriminating among nestmates. In this study, we examined the effect of paternal reproductive tactic on juvenile behaviour and ...

Abstract

Archaeological data on the long history of interaction between indigenous people and salmon have rarely been applied to conservation management. When joined with ethnohistoric records, archaeology provides an alternative conceptual view of the potential for sustainable harvests and can suggest...

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...

Abstract

The social behaviour of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) smolts collected from Rocky River, Newfoundland, Canada in the spring of 1999 and 2000 was evaluated during their migration period under controlled conditions in an experimental stream tank. 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)...

Abstract

This paper considers results from published studies and 3 studies in progress on the genetic differences between wild and hatchery (sea-ranched) populations of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.). Differences in physiological and behavioural traits were found that resulted in the reduction of...
