The Atlantic salmon is one of the most prized and exploited species worldwide, being at the centre of a massive sports fishing industry and increasingly as the major farmed species in many countries worldwide. Atlantic Salmon Ecology is a landmark publication, both scientifically important and visually attractive.
Comprehensively covering all major aspects of the relationship of the Atlantic salmon with its environment, chapters include details of migration and dispersal, reproduction, habitat requirements, feeding, growth rates, competition, predation, parasitsm, population dynamics, effects of landscape use, hydro power development, climate change, and exploitation. The book closes with a summary and look at possible future research directions.
The editors (of the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research, Norwegian U. of Science and Technology, Norwegian College of Fisheries Science at the U. of Tromso, and Oslo U. College, all in Norway) present a text aiming to provide a comprehensive treatment of the ecology of the Atlantic salmon. (SciTech Book News, December 2010)
