Scientists have learned that wolves in British Canada would rather fish for salmon than hunt for deer. Through studying prey remains found in wolf droppings, Chris Darimont from the University of Victoria and the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, Canada, and his team found that although wolves tend to feed on deer throughout the year, they prefer to eat salmon when it becomes available. "One might expect that wolves would move onto salmon only if their mainstay deer were in short supply. Our...

By ERIK ROBINSON Ocean conditions are shaping up for a big salmon return to the Columbia River and its tributaries beginning next year, according to federal scientists. Rebounding from abysmal conditions in 2005, scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say they're finding "very productive" conditions in the ocean north of Newport, Ore. It begins with an upwelling of cold water pulling nutrients up from the ocean depths. "There's lots of food, lots of juvenile...

By SILVER WILKIE THERE are some reasons why the swallows and their cousins, martins, are my favourite birds. I marvel at the courage of these tiny bundles that fly thousands of miles from southern Africa to spend the summer in the UK. The birds Nelson Mandela sees in his garden in the South African autumn sun could be the same ones I see swooping over the river and lochs that I fish months later. These wonderful birds navigate up through Africa, across the Sahara then over the Med...

By DAVID CARRICK THE heavy waters continue on local rivers and the 'silver run' of fish continues moving upstream on most of our local rivers. This augers well for the remaining two months of the season on English waters. The Tyne continues to produce good sport with both main tributaries giving up excellent catches. The Lambley Fishings have produced good catches, with the Madam's and Jackie's Pools yielding some good salmon and sea-trout. This beat has been producing over 100...

By BRIAN GEHRING By BRIAN GEHRING Scott Hobbs remembers when there were boats lined up on both sides of Highway 200 in Pick City and his gas lanes were full. And that was before he turned the key to open his bait and tackle shop in the morning. That was more than a few years ago, when salmon fishing on Lake Sakakawea was in its heyday. But with nearly a decade of drought and dwindling water levels, the salmon fishery has suffered as much as the parched plains of the prairie. But...

By MARK CZERWINSKI There was a definite and rather invigorating chill in the air early Wednesday morning, and, while it may be a little premature, it was enough to get you thinking seriously about the fall. It can be hard to let summer go, even if you don't have school to worry about starting next week. But just because we're getting ready to turn a page on the calendar doesn't mean that opportunities and challenges come grinding to a halt. For example, squirrel hunting season is right...

By DEIRDRE FLEMING It's a battle between history and natural history that has raged for several years. But soon the Scribner Mills Preservation will get its answer from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and will find out whether it can put a dam in the Crooked River. The river, the site of the original Scribner sawmill, happens to be the chief spawning habitat for landlocked salmon in Sebago Lake. Needless to say, the nonprofit preservation group in Harrison is fighting a...

THE future of the River Tyne's celebrated salmon stocks is being preserved thanks to a new attraction. The Kielder Salmon Centre is now open for visitors. The Environment Agency-run hatchery was opened 30 years ago to help preserve salmon stocks following the loss of important breeding habitats. Staff at the hatchery squeeze eggs out of the female fish before fertilising them in a bowl. Thousands of young salmon are born each year thanks to this technique and released into the River...

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...
