Despite conservation and rehabilitation plans, populations of this species are dramatically declining due to human impacts such as habitat fragmentation, overfishing and water pollution. Owing to their large body size, anadromous adults were historically invulnerable to fish predation during their spawning period migration. This invulnerability has disappeared in Western Europe with the introduction of a new freshwater predator, the European catfish Silurus glanis.
The connectivity of river drainages has been decreased by the installation of roadway culverts, particularly for the salmonids of the Pacific Northwest. Thousands of culverts within the State of Washington have been designated by the state DOT as fish passage barriers. Though it is well known that the anadromous salmon travel upstream to spawn, recent evidence suggests that juvenile salmon also travel upstream to seek preferred habitats for feeding, which may ultimately improve their survival at sea.
The behaviour of returning Salmo salar Linnaeus, approaching, and attempting to pass low-head weirs remains relatively unknown. A radio telemetry array was created at a low-head weir to enable the behaviour of S. The majority of fish successfully passed the barrier on their first or second attempt, some individuals required 11 attempts prior to successful passage occurring.

E Slatick. Pipes, which are relatively inexpensive and easily installed, are an economical and efficient solution to certain problems of fish passage at dams and at other obstacles blocking migratory routes. The purposes of this study were to determine: 1 if adult salmon and trout at Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River would use a pipe as a passageway and 2 how the conditions at the entrance and within the pipe, diameter and length, illumination, and flow would influence passage.
Rising river temperatures in western North America have increased the energetic costs of migration and the risk of premature mortality in many Pacific salmon Oncorhynchus spp. Predicting and managing risks for these populations requires data on acute and cumulative thermal exposure, the spatio-temporal distribution of adverse conditions, and the potentially mitigating effects of cool-water refuges. In this study, we paired radiotelemetry with archival temperature loggers to construct continuous, spatially-explicit thermal histories for adult Chinook salmon O.

Rhine salmon are not yet independent of human help and stocking exercises. But they already reproduce naturally in several tributaries to the Lower, Middle and Upper Rhine. By the end ofmore than adult salmon were proved to have migrated upstream the Rhine and its tributaries to spawn and reproduce. This raises hopes that almost stable wild salmon populations may be achieved in the Rhine system by the year
