There has been an increased focus on Salvelinus alpinus as a potential long-term host to Gyrodactylus salaris and, here, both susceptibility to G. salaris and ability to sustain a parasite population seasonally, was tested using fry and parr of S. alpinus from the River Skibotnelva, northern Norway. Fry were highly susceptible. Gyrodactylus salaris survived(More)
Seasonal growth patterns have been investigated in juveniles of two reproductively isolated Arctic charr [Salvelinus alpinus (L.)] morphs, which coexist in distinct ecological niches (upper-water and deep-water environments) in a subarctic lake. Offspring (F1-generation) of each of the littoral spawning charr (LO) and the profundal spawning charr (PB) were(More)
Temperature preference of juvenile (age 1+) Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus L.) originating from four arctic and sub-arctic populations (Svalbard and mainland northern Norway), representing a range of habitats with different temperature conditions, was studied by use of a shuttle-box system which allowed individual fish to control their environmental(More)
This article describes the status of the Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus L.) aquaculture industry in Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The purpose of the work was to give an update on the status of Arctic charr farming in these countries based on information obtained from the industry itself. The data were collected using questionnaires designed for the purpose(More)
The Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) is a relatively stenothermal fish that displays a high degree of biological plasticity. Although primarily a freshwater fish, there are anadromous populations at the northernmost limits of the distributional range. Developmental plasticity has both advantages and disadvantages for establishment in culture, with variable(More)
Better knowledge of food search behaviour in fish is essential for studies that aim to improve longline fishing, particularly through bait development. This review provides an overview of our understanding of how fish detect and locate sources of food odour, focusing on the stimuli and sensory modalities involved, and on factors that affect feeding(More)
