Salmon at Sea: Scientific Advances and their Implications for Management
One year ago, results from surveys, sampling programs, historical data, stable isotopes, genetic studies, and tagging experiments were reviewed at an international symposium organized by the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organization and ICES. The symposium highlighted advances in our understanding of migration, distribution, and survival of salmon at sea. It also outlined possible causes of recent mortality increases, research priorities, and potential management actions. Papers from the symposium are now published in the ICES Journal of Marine Science.
