Jonsson, S. 2001. Stocking of Brown trout (Salmo trutta L.); factors affecting survival and growth. Doctoral dissertation. ISBN 91-576-63 14-9, ISSN 1401-6230 In this thesis, a 23-years stocking program of brown trout (Salrno truttu) smolts, annually released into the rivers Umeand Vindelalven is evaluated. The statistics of homing adults caught in a fish ladder as well as individually tagged trout caught in the fishery were evaluated. Stocked anadromous trout migrated only short distances… 
Survival and growth rates of juvenile salmonids reared in lowland streams
Variability in environmental parameters such as temperature, oxygenation, conductivity, and stream width and depth were associated with differentiation in the biological parameters of the fry, indicating that the considerable potential of small lowland streams for the propagation of salmonid juvenile stages is currently underexploited.
Migration and genetic structure of Salmo salar and Salmo trutta in northern Swedish rivers
Migrations and genetics are related to anthropogenic factors as historical log-floating and hydropower production, and restorations of connectivity and river habitats were hypothesized to positively influence salmon and sea trout production and gene flow among populations.
Feeding habit of Brown trout (Salmo trutta fario) in upper parts of river Swat, Pakistan.
Descriptive statistics are used for the stomach fullness, which shows that feeding intensity was recorded higher from March to May, which will help in the development of an artificial diet for the species for better growth performance in captivity.
Linking genetic assignment tests with telemetry enhances understanding of spawning migration and homing in sea trout Salmo trutta L.
Combining migration data with genetic assignment tests of radio-tagged sea trout in two Swedish rivers enhances understanding of migration behavior, important for conservation and management.
The effects of population density and lake characteristics on growth and size structure of brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis (Mitchill, 1815) in boreal forest lakes in Canada
The higher the proportion of littoral habitat area the higher the densities of brook trout, which correspondingly had important effects on growth, natural mortality and size structure of the brook Trout populations.
Effects of live feeds and compounded diet on growth parameters of brown trout fry (salmo trutta abanticus t. 1954) in the context of habitat restoration
Three diets were tested to feed triplicate groups of Salmo trutta abanticus fry with initial average body weight in fiberglass tank and the best results for average daily growth, specific growth rate, feed conversion ratio, protein efficiency ratio, daily growth index, feed efficiency, plasma total protein, weight increase, mean weight gain and survival rate were observed.
Coastal migrations, temporary use of neighbouring rivers, and growth of sea trout (Salmo trutta) from nine northern Baltic Sea rivers

Survival and distribution of pond- and hatchery-reared 0+ brown trout, Salmo trutta L., released in a Swedish stream
Electrofishing revealed that the stocked fish gradually spread downstream from the point of release at the expense of the resident wild trout population in Laktabacken Creek in Swedish Lapland.
Survival of stocked hatchery‐reared brown trout, Salmo trutta L., fry in relation to the carrying capacity of a trout nursery stream
It is suggested that spawning and recruitment in the Owendoher yield population densities approaching the maximum carrying capacity of the stream, which appears to support a maximum summer fry density in the region of 1 fish/m2 and a maximum autumn density of 0.7 fish/ m2.
Brown trout (Salmo trutta) habitat use and life history in Swedish streams: possible effects of biotic interactions
To test if habitat use and life history of stream-dwelling brown trout (Salmo trutta) differed between allopatric and sympatric situations, data from a large national database containing electrofishing results from Swedish streams was used.
Stocking experiments with 0+ and 1+ trout parr, Salmo trutta L., of wild and hatchery origin. 1 : Post-stocking mortality and smolt yield
It is concluded that the higher mortality of domestic trout was caused by changes in food, feeding and exercise, possibly combined with the lack of selection in the hatchery.
Nutritional Deprivation after Stocking as a Possible Mechanism Leading to Mortality in Stream-Stocked Brook Trout
A comparative analysis of the diet of catchable-sized resident brown trout and stocked brook trout was carried out on McMichael Creek to determine if there is a differential success in feeding which might affect mortality.
Conservation and management of brown trout, Salmo trutta, in Ireland
Ireland's trout fauna is a mosaic of subspecies and races rather than a single species, one of which includes the valuable long-lived sea trout and freshwater ferox, and roach is the species spreading fastest.
Post‐stocking movements and recapture of hatchery‐reared trout released into flowing waters—a review
The success of stocking with hatchery-reared trout has been the subject of varied investigations for the past half-century, with highest returns obtained from stockings, with trout of a size suitable for angling, made during or shortly before the angling season.
Some studies suggest that lotic populations of brown trout are regulated through density-dependent mortality and emigration to the extent that mean growth rates of resident survivors are unrelated to trout densities, but this study studies the relationship between density and growth, mortality, and em migration in two alpine streams and a set of stream channels in eastern California.
Territorial behavior and its role in population regulation of young brown trout (Salmo trutta) : new perspectives
A comprehensive working hypothesis is proposed to explain the mechanisms behind population regulation which result in a dome-shaped stock-recruitment relation ship in a migratory brown trout population.
