Dorsal fin damage in salmonid fishes is primarily caused by aggression. While undesirable in fish culture, it can nevertheless be a useful tool to study social interactions in large groups of fish where it is difficult to study the behaviour of known individuals directly. We used low Ž . temperature treatment to manipulate the growth rates of juvenile Atlantic salmon Salmo salar in the spring and followed the development of fin damage in tagged individuals. Fin damage did not develop until mid… CONTINUE READING
