An introduction to fish migration by Pedro Morais, Francoise Daverat

By Pedro Morais, Francoise Daverat

Since the book of The Migrations of Fish by Prof. Alexander Meek in 1916, a couple of books were released in this topic. even though, every one of these books in basic terms hide one kind of migratory mechanisms. This e-book goals to beat this problem via offering a finished insurance of all existence historical past strategies―potadromy, anadromy, catadromy, amphidromy and oceanodromy in a single book.

The first part of this booklet reports the heritage of fish migration stories, the most definitions and ideas similar with fish migration and the most developments and demanding situations of fish migration examine. the second one part describes the most techniques and styles linked to all migratory lifestyles historical past recommendations, in addition to the most difficulties linked to their conservation. eventually, the 3rd part offers examples of the most methodologies used to check fish migration.

This ebook was once conceived with the target to supply undergraduate and graduate scholars and researchers with a complete publication on which they can rely.

2012). Stevens and Dupont (2011) observed westslope cutthroat trout, rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss, and mountain whitefish Prosopium williamsoni moving into cooler Coeur d’Alene River side channels as main-river water temperatures increased. Movements and aggregations of salmonids seeking coldwater refugia in streams have also been documented for brook trout (Baird and Krueger 2003) and rainbow trout (Kaya et al. 1977; Ebersole et al. 2001; Sutton et al. 2007). Lake dwelling brook trout (Biro 1998) and lake trout Salvelinus namaycush (Snucins and Gunn 1995) have been similarly observed moving into cooler water areas as water temperatures rose in lakes.

Winter refuge migrations: Overwinter ecology of stream-dwelling fishes is perhaps the least understood aspect of their life history. Many fishes occupy different habitats in winter than in summer. As water temperatures decline, fish move from summer habitat into suitable overwintering areas, often at much lower elevations (Bjornn and Mallet 1964). These lower elevation overwintering habitats may provide more benign conditions such as warmer water temperatures, less anchor ice, and more opportunities to escape predators.
