Diadromy is a term used to describe migrations of fishes between fresh waters and the sea; these migrations are regular, physiologically mediated movements which occur at predictable life history phases in each diadromous species, they involve most members of a species' populations, and they are usually obligatory. Around 250 fish species are regarded as diadromous. A review of the life history strategies amongst families of fishes that include diadromous species provides little support for a… CONTINUE READING
