      The survival of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), an increasingly rare anadromous species, has declined dramatically during its marine phase, with disproportionate impacts on the poorly understood early post-smolt period. ...
    • Effects of temperature and feeding regime on cortisol concentrations in scales of Atlantic salmon post-smolts 

      O'Toole, Christina; White, Philip; Thomas, Katie; O'Maoiléidigh, Niall; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Hansen, Tom Johnny; Graham, Conor T.; Brophy, Deirdre (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2023)
      Anadromous fish are vulnerable to anthropogenic and environmental stressors including pollution, rising temperatures, and changes in food availability. Knowledge of how fish respond to specific stressors aid our understanding ...
    • Feeding interactions between Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) postsmolts and other planktivorous fish in the Northeast Atlantic

    • Poor feeding opportunities and reduced condition factor for salmon post-smolts in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean 

      Utne, Kjell Rong; Pauli, Beatriz Diaz; Haugland, Monika; Jacobsen, Jan Arge; Maoileidigh, Niall O´; Melle, Webjørn Raunsgård; Broms, Cecilie; Nøttestad, Leif; Holm, Marianne; Thomas, Katie; Wennevik, Vidar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      During the last few decades, many wild Atlantic salmon populations have declined dramatically. One possible contributing factor for the decline is reduced prey availability at sea. Here, we examine post-smolt diet and ...
