Genetic research is showing that healthy steelhead runs in Pacific Northwest streams can depend heavily on the productivity of their stay-at-home counterparts, rainbow trout. Steelhead and rainbow trout look different, grow differently, and one heads off to sea while the other never leaves home. But the life histories and reproductive health of wild trout and steelhead are tightly linked and interdependent, more so than has been appreciated, a new Oregon State University study concludes. The...

Some fish do not respond well to relocation according to Heredity study Not all trout are created equal. Those swimming up the streams of British Columbia might resemble their cousins from Quebec, yet their genetic makeup is regionally affected and has an impact on how they reproduce, grow and react to environmental stressors. Such regional variance makes transplanting fish species "“ to bolster dwindling populations "“ tricky business. These are some of the findings of a...

NOVATO, Calif., Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Preliminary counts of fall-run Chinook salmon returning to spawn in Central Valley rivers are encouraging, with this year's numbers well ahead of the record lows measured in the past two years. However, recovery of the species--and the valuable commercial and recreational fisheries it supports--will require stronger efforts to reverse damage caused by excessive water diversions, habitat loss and pollution to the river and San Francisco Bay...

A study has found that the distinct genetic characteristics of salmon populations in Spain are dwindling because of climate change and human interference. The researchers from the universities of Exeter, UK, and Oviedo, Spain said that disrupting the species' migratory behavior and strong homing instinct could have long-term consequences. They also said that they were trying to find a way to "disentangle" the individual threats affecting salmon populations. The study focused on the changes...

The role of a key nutrient which prevents cataracts in salmon has been revealed by eye specialists at the University of East Anglia. Research published today in the American Journal of Physiology - Regulatory, Integrative and Comparative Physiology shows how the nutrient histidine, when added to the diet of farmed salmon, stops cataracts (clouding of the lens in the eye) from forming. Following fears over BSE in the early 1990s, blood meal was removed from the diet of farmed salmon. This...

Fast-growing farm-raised salmon and trout that are sterile can now be produced using a method developed by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists. Blocking reproduction can enhance growth, and is important for fish being reared in situations where reproduction is undesirable. The method allows researchers to more efficiently and reliably produce fish that have three sets of chromosomes, instead of the usual two sets. Fish with the extra set of chromosomes can't reproduce, so the...

Brown Trout, Salmo trutta
2013-10-15 12:46:40

The Brown Trout (Salmo trutta) is originally a European species of salmonid fish. It includes both purely freshwater populations, referred to Salmo trutta morpha fario and S. trutta morpha lacustris, and anadromous forms referred to as the sea trout, S. trutta morpha trutta. The latter migrates to the oceans for the majority of its life and returns to freshwater only to spawn. The specific handle trutta comes from the Latin trutta, meaning, literally, “trout”. The lacustrine morph of...

Australian salmon are medium-sized perciform marine fish of the small family Arripidae. Four species are recognized, all within the genus Arripis; they are found in the waters off southern Australia (including Tasmania) and New Zealand. Despite the common name, Australian salmon are not related to the salmon (family Salmonidae) of the Northern Hemisphere; the former were named so by early European settlers after their superficial resemblance to the salmoniform fishes. Relatively long-lived...
