199 A review of local adaptation in salmonidae, with particular reference to Pacific and Atlantic salmon

Rapid development of aquaculture operations for various salmonids has raised concern that interbreeding between wild salmon and hatchery strays or fish that have escaped from salmon farms may alter "locally adapted" trails of wild populations....

217 Sedimentation and organic loading at fish farms

Water pollution and environmental degradation poses serious threats to fish farms. One potential source of pollution is the farm itself. As farm sizes increase, this threat becomes more substantive, especially at sites that are poorly flushed...

332 Production of Fraser River Sockeye salmon in relation to decadal-scale changes in the climate and the ocean,

The abundance of Fraser River sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) stocks was low in the 1960s, increased to high levels in the 1980s, and possibly entered a period of low abundance in recent years. The abundance changes of the combined stocks can...

3004 Species-specific patterns of aggregation of wild fish around fish farms

Fish-farming structures are widespread in coastal waters and are highly attractive to wild fish. Several studies have estimated that tons to tens of tons of wild fish aggregate around fish farms. These estimates assumed that the majority of wild...

Recently developed techniques for estimating bacterial biomass and productivity indicate that bacterial biomass in the sea is related to phytoplankton concentration and that bacteria utilize 10 to 50 % of carbon fixed by photosynthesis. Evidence...

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...
