64 The stepping stone model of population structure an the decrease of genetic correlative with distance

When a species occupies a very large territory, local differentiation is usually noticeable in the form of geographical races. Each race may in turn consist of numerous colonies which are differentiated to a less noticeable extent. The underlying...

166 The importance of streamside vegetation to trout and salmon in British Columbia

The relationship between streamside vegetation and salmonid stream ecology has been one of the most neglected areas of fisheries research in British Columbia. These notes attempt to suggest the probable importance of streamside vegetation to...

43 Inbreeding and variance effective numbers in populations with overlapping generations

The concept of effective population number originated with Sewall Wright (1931,1938). He and others have calculated effective population numbers for a variety of models of population reproduction. In particular, Kimuha and Crow (1963) have...

137 Genetic and environmental sources of variation in length and weight of rainbow trout (Salmon gairdneri)

Rainbow trout [Salmo gairdneri) of three-year-classes (1967-1969) were produced from random mating, and one-year-class (1970) from inbreeding. The two first-year-classes were fullsib groups. Intraclass-correlations for body length in the 1967-...

135 Production of metabolic and waste products by intensively farmed of rainbow trout, Salmon gairdneri

The pollution production rate as measured by the increase in the amounts of ammonia, phosphate, nitrate, urea, and faeces in an intensive fish farm is described and is related to the amount of food fed per day or the biomass weight. Pollution...

2384 1 Nutrition,

In 1972 we published a review in Advances in Marine Biology which summarized the current situation in fish nutrition as we saw it at that time (Cowey and Sargent, 1972). Our approach, both from inclination and conviction, was biochemical. We...

55 On water exchange in a net cage stocked with the fish, Hamachi

From 1964 to 1966 a number of studies were done in western Japan on the environment of fish culture grounds. Most of the research concerned hamachi (yellowtail, Seriola quinqueradiata). This paper summarizes and discusses the results from these...

2295 The Egg Size of Salmon (Salmo Salar) in Norwegian Rivers.

The egg diameter of salmon from 16 different localities in Norway, including 2 [`]grilse' rivers, was observed. There was a significant difference between rivers, and a significant effect of body length on egg diameter. Age had no effect. The...

2818 Atlantic Herring as a Dietary Component for Culture of Atlantic Salmon.

Chopped herring was readily eaten by Atlantic salmon. Fry, parr and smolts grew well on a herring-rich diet but after long periods fry and smolts developed symptoms of nutritional deficiency which were quickly cured by omitting herring from the...

2666 Attempted Triploid Induction in Atlantic Salmon (Salmo Salar) Using Cold Shocks.

Radiation gynogenesis was used to investigate the effect of sub-zero cold shocks in inhibiting the second meiotic division of eggs of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). If cold shocks were successful in giving rise to diploid gynogenesis they could...

58 Intensified fish culture combining water reconditioning with pollution abatement

Diminishing sources of new pure water supplies, increasing demand for sport and commercial fishes, and developing governmental pollution abatement requirements in the U.S.A. led to a study by the authors' firm for a group of agencies. It was...
