!!!!! Must Read. PNS (Public News Service) Publishing 500 "[Salmon at the Edge] discusses the problems faced by wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and sea trout (S. trutta) in estuaries and coastal regions and in their early weeks of life at sea. Also discussed is the impact of salmon farming, the behaviour of post-smolts during early mogration and their vulnerability to by-catch, and the use of nutrient enrichment and habitat enhancement to increase production of juvenile salmonids." CABI Abstracts "I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in Atlantic salmon and I agree with the publisher's assessment on the back cover that it is "essential reading" for students and professionals involved with research or management of salmonid fishes or with salmon aquaculture."
