The environmental requirements of upstream migrant Atlantic salmon Salmo salar L. in the estuary of the River Thames have been described in terms of the concentration of dissolved oxygen (DO), expressed as median and 95%ile exceedance values, during the whole period of migration, and over different distances, for the years 1982-1984 (Alabaster & Gough, 1986). They have also been further identified in terms of DO, water temperature, freshwater flow and tidal height for the period 1982-1989 (Alabaster, Gough and Brooker (in press). The present analysis includes data for 1990.
