Where Atlantic salmon feed in the ocean has been a long-standing mystery, but new research led by the University of Southampton shows that marine location can be recovered from the chemistry of fish scales.

They have silvery sides and bluish backs. They are commercially fished, and marketed fresh or frozen.

Relatively long-lived...
