Title: Hampshire salmon investigation report on salmon radio tracking 1991
Author: R.A. Horsfield
Document Type: Monograph
This document reports on the second year of the Hampshire Salmon Investigation radio tracking program. The work carried out during 1991 followed along the lines laid out in the Plans for 1991, section 5 of the 'Report on salmon radio tracking in 1990'. The aims are to tag 50 adult salmon on the Itchen and 30 on the Test and to develop catching methods. Trials will also be undertaken to capture and tag fish seaward of the two estuaries, so that the behaviour of fish approaching the river can be monitored. The project will deploy a network of up to 16 scanning recording stations on the two rivers. This will allow a more detailed examination of behavior patterns than was feasible in 1990. The project will also undertake a detailed tracking of fish at spawning time to establish the distribution pattern of spawning activity.
