Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: The Bensinger-Liddell Memorial Atlantic Salmon Fellowship 1983
This Atlantic Salmon Fellowship, which honours the memory of two outstanding salmon conservationists from both sides of the Atlantic, was established by the International Atlantic Salmon Foundation (now the Atlantic Salmon Federation) and the Atlantic Salmon Trust to encourage the exchange of expertise in Atlantic Salmon research, management and conservation in the United Kingdom, North America and elsewhere throughout the North Atlantic. This Report was made by Dr. D.J. Solomon, who was awarded the Fellowship for 1983. After completing a Ph.D. at the University of London, David Solomon joined the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in London in 1971. This research focuses mainly on the ecology and migration of salmonids, and on the effects of water resource management on fisheries.
