Attempts to avoid dams decrease survival in adult fishScientists have discovered that management efforts intended to assist migrations of salmon and steelhead trout can have unintended consequences for fish populations. Juveniles that are transported downstream on boats can lose the ability to migrate back to their breeding grounds, reducing their survivorship and altering adaptations in the wild.Transportation programs have been in place for over three decades to improve the survival of fish...

Most of California's native salmon, steelhead and trout species face extinction this century without quick action to provide proper habitats, a study found. Twenty of 31 species of prized fish are in sharp decline, including the Sacramento River winter run of Chinook salmon, coastal Coho salmon and the Sierra Nevada golden trout, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. Our fish need cold, clean water to survive, but they're getting less and less of it, said University of California, Davis,...

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...

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...
