Hatchery-reared salmon smolt used for supplementary stocking often display poor migration behavior compared to wild smolt, which reduces the success of this management action. Oxazepam, an anxiolytic drug, has been shown to intensify salmon smolt migration in mesocosm experiments, and treatment with this drug has, therefore, been suggested as a management option to improve downstream smolt migration. In this study, we tested this by assessing migration performance of hatchery-reared Atlantic… 
Impacts of Oxazepam on Perch (Perca fluviatilis) Behavior: Fish Familiarized to Lake Conditions Do Not Show Predicted Anti-anxiety Response
TLDR
The results indicate that the effects of oxazepam on perch behavior in a familiar natural ecosystem are negligible in comparison to the results of other environmental conditions.
Chronic exposure to oxazepam pollution produces tolerance to anxiolytic effects in zebrafish (Danio rerio).
TLDR
Zebrafish females showed reduced diving responses to conspecific alarm pheromone after 7 days, but not after 28 days, indicating that they had developed tolerance to the anxiolytic effects of the drug.
Behavioural effects of psychoactive pharmaceutical exposure on European perch (Perca fluviatilis) in a multi-stressor environment.
TLDR
This multi-stressor study is the first to uncover how anxiety-related behaviours in wild juvenile fish are altered by changes in water temperature and perceived predation risk, and highlights the need to focus on multiple stressors to improve understanding of how organisms not only survive, but adapt to, human-induced environmental change.
Maturation in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar, Salmonidae): a synthesis of ecological, genetic, and molecular processes
TLDR
In the future, maturation research should focus on a broader diversity of life history stages, including early embryonic development, the marine phase and return migration, and studies combining ecological and genetic approaches will help disentangle the relative contributions of effects in different lifehistory stages to maturation.
Behavioral effects of citalopram, tramadol, and binary mixture in zebrafish (Danio rerio) larvae.
TLDR
It is concluded that tramadol and citalopram produce hypoactivity in 144 hpf zebrafish larvae and a 1:1 binary mixture of the two caused the same response, albeit at a higher concentration, possibly due to SS.
Emerging investigator series: use of behavioural endpoints in the regulation of chemicals.
TLDR
It is concluded that ecotoxicity studies investigating behavioural endpoints are occasionally used in the EU chemicals regulation, and underscore that behavioural end points can be relevant at the population level.
Environmentally relevant concentrations of the common anxiolytic pharmaceutical oxazepam do not have acute effect on spawning behavior in mature male Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) parr
Low concentrations of psychiatric drugs are commonly found in surface waters around the world, and their ability to alter behaviors in aquatic fauna has raised concerns about ecological effects. On
Zebrafish Models in Neural and Behavioral Toxicology across the Life Stages
TLDR
It is proposed that carefully-controlled laboratory experiments on different behavioral domains—including anxiety, aggression, and exploration—can increase the understanding of the ecotoxicological impacts of contaminants, since these domains are related to traits such as defense, sociality, and reproduction, directly impacting life-history traits.
A review on impact of water pollution on freshwater fish species and their aquatic environment
TLDR
This chapter aims to reviews the various types of impacts caused by water pollution on the health of fish species and their ecosystem.
Effects of Pollution on Fish Behavior, Personality, and Cognition: Some Research Perspectives
Pollutants, and more generally, environmental stressors, are a neglected source of behavioral and cognitive variations in wild populations. Based on recent literature in fish, we highlight four

Pike predation on hatchery-reared Atlantic salmon smolts in a northern Baltic river
TLDR
The effect of pike Esox lucius predation on the mortality of newly stocked Atlantic salmon Salmo salar smolts was investigated in the Pyhajoki River, Finland and Pike <40 cm had not eaten any Smolts, probably indicating a size refuge for the smolTS, or alternatively fear of intraspecific interactions or cannibalism of p Pike.
A critical life stage of the Atlantic salmon Salmo salar: behaviour and survival during the smolt and initial post-smolt migration.
The anadromous life cycle of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar involves long migrations to novel environments and challenging physiological transformations when moving between salt-free and salt-rich
GABAergic anxiolytic drug in water increases migration behaviour in salmon
TLDR
It is shown that an anxiolytic drug in water can promote downward migratory behaviour of Atlantic salmon in both laboratory setting and in a natural river tributary, implicate that salmon migration may be affected by human-induced changes in water chemical properties, such as acidification and pharmaceutical residues in wastewater effluent, via alterations in the GABAA receptor function.
Effects of training on functional variables of muscles in reared Atlantic salmon Salmo salar smolts: connection to downstream migration pattern.
TLDR
The prerequisites for effective contraction of the swimming muscles are better met in trained S. salar compared to untrained fish, and the muscles of trained Smolts more closely resemble those of wild smolts.
Migration confers survival benefits against avian predators for partially migratory freshwater fish
TLDR
It is shown that fish can reduce their predation risk from cormorants by migrating into streams, and that probability of being preyed upon by cormarants is positively related to the time individuals spend in the lake during winter.
No evidence of increased growth or mortality in fish exposed to oxazepam in semi-natural ecosystems.
TLDR
The results suggest that GBMs, which in laboratory studies impact fish behavior, and subsequently also feeding rates, do not seem to generate strong effects on growth and predation-risk in more complex and resource limited natural environments.
Seasonal Migration Determined by a Trade-Off between Predator Avoidance and Growth
TLDR
The conceptual model provides a mechanistic understanding to mass–migration in prey fish and shows that the dominant prey fish is actually absent from the lake during a major part of the year, which should have strong implications for the dynamics of the lake ecosystem through direct and indirect food-web interactions.
Investigating tissue bioconcentration and the behavioural effects of two pharmaceutical pollutants on sea trout (Salmo trutta) in the laboratory and field.
TLDR
These findings add to a growing literature showing that benzodiazepine pollutants can modulate fish behaviour and that laboratory assays may be less sensitive at detecting the effects of pollutants compared to measuring effects in natural settings, underscore the importance of measuring behavioural effects in the natural environment.
The effects of ration size on migration by hatchery-raised Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and brown trout (Salmo trutta)
TLDR
The possibility to increase the proportion of migrating hatchery-reared smolts by reducing their food ration was studied and it was found that migrating salmon and trout with a lower food ration are more likely to migrate.
Behavioural effects of psychoactive pharmaceutical exposure on European perch (Perca fluviatilis) in a multi-stressor environment.
TLDR
This multi-stressor study is the first to uncover how anxiety-related behaviours in wild juvenile fish are altered by changes in water temperature and perceived predation risk, and highlights the need to focus on multiple stressors to improve understanding of how organisms not only survive, but adapt to, human-induced environmental change.
