From the Back Cover:

The Atlantic Salmon is a complex species, transforming from a freshwater to sea fish, migrating across thousands of miles of ocean and returning to the river where it was born. Atlantic Salmon Ecology provides comprehensive coverage of all the major aspects of the ecology of this amazing and hugely biologically and commercially important species.

Coverage in this landmark book includes novel findings and state-of-the-art knowledge on migration, reproduction, habitat, feeding, growth, competition, predation, parasitism, population dynamics and landscape use. Chapters also include coverage of some of the major problems faced by salmon due to anthropogenic disturbance, including alteration of in-stream habitats, hydropower development, the spread of parasites, including Gyrodactylus salaris and sea lice problems associated with aquaculture, pollution, climate change and fishing mortality.

Carefully edited, and beautifully produced, with contributions from over 40 scientists from all the countries where Atlantic Salmon is a major species, Atlantic Salmon Ecology is an essential purchase for all those involved in the study and management of Atlantic Salmon, including fish biologists, aquatic scientists, ecologists, environmental scientists, fisheries managers, NGO representatives, and personnel involved in the salmon farming industry. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where biological sciences, fisheries, and aquaculture are studied and taught should have copies of this exceptional volume on their shelves.
