Author: Atlantic Salmon Trust
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: Bensinger Liddell Memorial Fellowship 1989/90
This report describes important elements of the acidification problem, outlines its history and details mitigation techniques available to protect fishery resources with particular emphasis on Atlantic salmon. The information presented was gathered principally during the tenure of the 1989/90 Bensinger-Liddell Memorial Fellowship which permitted visits to be made to Scotland, Norway, Canada and the United States. Additional information has been drawn from a short study tour of the Goteborg area of Sweden made in 1988, together with material from the work of the National Rivers Authority Severn-Trent Region Fisheries Department (formerly Severn Trent Water Authority) and published sources.
