Homing Pacific salmon are suggested to utilise directional cues in shallow water while migrating in coastal waters. Since salmonids are typical cold-water fish, they may have to cope with warm surface water while gathering directional information. We studied behavioural thermoregulation of 31 free-ranging chum salmon Oncorhynchus keta using micro data loggers off the Sanriku coast from early October to December. The surface water temperature was approximately 20 degrees C in early October and… CONTINUE READING
