Title: Workshop Proceedings: fish movement in relation to freshwater flow and quality
Author: Atlantic Salmon Trust
Document Type: Monograph
Fish movements and the factors controlling them are of special importance for migratory salmonid fisheries management. Salmon stocks and the fisheries they support are entirely dependent upon the fishes' ability to move through estuaries and rivers and to disperse in ways that optimise catch and recruitment. Several studies are in progress in Britain investigating various aspects of salmon (and sea trout) movements. This workshop provided an opportunity to review progress and collate results in order to establish common themes and to identify priorities for future work. These proceedings will provide a summary of the presentations and conclusions for the workshop participants.
