This is a CD-ROM version of the out-of-print 1987 book.

Diadromous fishes migrate between marine and fresh waters to feed or breed. They are biologically fascinating, and many of them support important sport or commercial fisheries. The phenomenon of diadromy was the focus of a 1986 symposium sponsored by the AFS Northeastern Division. These proceedings present the peer-reviewed papers of experts from 10 countries.

Common Strategies of Anadromous and Catadromous Fishes is organized into a keynote and four topical sections. The keynote section reviews the occurrence of diadromy and explores the possible evolutionary processes. The topical sections deal with possible critical life cycle periods and mechanisms – utilization of freshwater, transition to and from the sea, migration, and recruitment.

Authors were encouraged to exchange ideas and discuss topic coverage before the symposium and manuscripts were available for reference following the meeting. The editors think this approach fostered an exceptional degree of recognition and cooperation, resulting in a cohesive final publication. Interested participants also presented their ideas and findings in a poster session, the abstracts from which have been included here. An evening workshop was held to discuss future directions for research into diadromy, and it is summarized in these proceedings.
