The environmental requirements of salmon and trout in fresh water

D. Trevor Crisp

Abstract

In recent years a number of books and research papers have brought
together much of the available information on environmental
requirements of salmon and trout. General information on salmon is given
by Le Cren (1984), and for trout information is given by Le Cren (1985),
Elliott (1989) and National Rivers Authority (1991). Solbe (1988) is a
valuable summary of the water quality requirements of salmon and trout
but is slanted towards chemical pollutants. Further useful information is
included in Mills (1992). The Salmon Advisory Committee (1991)
produced a report on factors affecting natural smolt production of Atlantic
salmon. This document is of patchy quality and appears to contain some
material which is well documented in peer-review literature and some
which is not.
