The rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum, 1792)) is one of many salmonid species exhibiting a gradient of life histories including fluvial (stream-resident), anadromous (ocean-migrant), and ...

Nonanadromous Life History Diversity of Rainbow Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)
Eco-evolutionary feedbacks in the functional role of a polymorphic colonizer: Arctic charr in subarctic lakes of Alaska and Iceland
In subarctic lakes with low levels of fish diversity, food chains lengthened via insertion of intermediate prey, and ecosystem attributes, including the presence of competitors and competitor resource use, were associated with allometric shifts in Arctic charr resource use.
Ontogenetic and ecotypic variation in the coloration and morphology of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in a stream–lake system
This study investigated the coloration, morphology associated with swimming performance of wild, native non-anadromous rainbow trout in connected stream and lake habitats of a south-west Alaskan watershed to assess if they exhibited phenotypic diversity consistent with the presence of alternative fluvial and adfluvial ecotypes.
The response of juvenile coho and chinook salmon stocks to salmon spawner abundance: marine nutrients as drivers of productivity
There is compelling evidence that MDN from spawning Pink Salmon may enhance the productivity of Coho and Chinook salmon.
Retention of a chromosomal inversion from an anadromous ancestor provides the genetic basis for alternative freshwater ecotypes in rainbow trout
Data from restriction site‐associated DNA (RAD) sequencing revealed an association between frequencies of both the Omy05 inversion complex and other single nucleotide polymorphisms with habitat type (stream or lake), supporting the genetic divergence of fluvial and adfluvial individuals in sympatry.
Bridging the Gap Between Salmon Spawner Abundance and Marine Nutrient Assimilation by Juvenile Salmon: Seasonal Cycles and Landscape Effects at the Watershed Scale
Examining seasonal, watershed-scale patterns of MDN assimilation in rearing coho and Chinook salmon compared with spawner biomass and landscape features in a western Alaska watershed with contrasting structural complexity in two sub-drainages found that MDNAssimilation by juvenile salmon in the fall was a function of species-specific adult spawner abundance but seasonal patterns ofMDNassimilation were masked in complex habitat where summer MDN Assimilation remained high.
Reliance on lakes by salmon, trout and charr ( Oncorhynchus , Salmo and Salvelinus ): An evaluation of spawning habitats, rearing strategies and trophic polymorphisms
It is found that the extent of reliance on lakes exhibits a negative association with the degree of anadromy, opposite of the general prevalence of an adfluviality among these genera.
Genetic mixture analyses in support of restoration of a high value recreational fishery for rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) from a large lake in interior British Columbia
The authors used variation at 10 microsatellite DNA loci to assess the level of genetic divergence between two ecotypes of rainbow trout that naturally co-occur in Kootenay Lake, southeastern British Columbia, and to exploit such divergence in a mixture analysis.


Recycling of Elements Transported Upstream by Runs of Pacific Salmon: II. δ15N and δ13C Evidence in the Kvichak River Watershed, Bristol Bay, Southwestern Alaska
Biota δ15N and δ13C values (deviations from recognized isotope standards) from lliamna Lake (a major anadromous sockeye salmon nursery lake supporting peak-year runs) are studied.
Recycling of elements transported upstream by runs of Pacific Salmon. I: δ15N and δ13C evidence in Sashin Creek, southeastern Alaska
Values of δ15N and δ13C (the per mil deviation from the recognized isotope standard) from biota of a southeastern Alaska stream (Sashin Creek) that receives an annual run of 30 000 anadromous pink ...
Ecology and Life History of Coaster Brook Trout and Potential Bottlenecks in Their Rehabilitation
Comparisons of recent biological data from populations in the Lake Superior basin show that the northern populations have longer lengths at age 18, and the role of evolution and the proximate factors triggering specific life histories remain uncertain.
Biology, Status, and Management of the Yellowstone Cutthroat Trout
Primary threats to persistence of Yellowstone cutthroat trout include invasive species, resulting in hybridization, predation, disease, and interspecific competition, and habitat degradation from human activities such as agricultural practices, water diversions, grazing, dam construction, mine....
Varying effects of anadromous sockeye salmon on the trophic ecology of two species of resident salmonids in southwest Alaska
Using a bioenergetics model, it is predicted that salmon-derived resources contributed a large majority of the energy necessary for growth in this resident fish community and showed how seasonal changes in diet affected the stable isotope ratios of both species.
Ontogenetic Shifts in Habitat and Diet of Cutthroat Trout in Lake Washington, Washington
The objective was to study the growth, diet, and size distribution of cutthroat trout in littoral and limnetic habitats of Lake Washington, with emphasis on consumption of two of the lake's dominant pelagic planktivores: juvenile sockeye salmon O. nerka and longfin smelt Spirinchus thaleichthys.
Lakeward Migration of Young Rainbow Trout (Salmo gairdneri) in the Upper Lardeau River, British Columbia
Field observations and experiments suggest that water temperature may be important in inducing different responses to water current in these fish, but may not play such a predominant role or operate at the same levels as proposed earlier for control of young trout migration in the Loon Lake system.
A Comparison of Two Salamander Populations in Marion Lake, British Columbia
A population of Taricha granulosa with a population of neotenous Ambystoma gracile in a small lake in southwest British Columbia is compared to find the species never found in the stomach of the main predator in the lake, rainbow trout.
Factors That Limit Growth and Abundance of Rainbow Trout Across Ecologically Distinct Areas of Flaming Gorge Reservoir, Utah-Wyoming
Overall, rainbow trout appear to be spatially limited by physical factors during only a few isolated times of the year and not in all areas of the reservoir.
Diversity in Habitat Use and Trophic Ecology of Brook Trout in Lake Superior and Tributary Streams Revealed Through Stable Isotopes
Comparisons of stable isotope (δ13C and δ15N) signatures between fish caught in the lake and those captured in streams supported the hypothesis of relatively distinct types differing in habitat use and trophic ecology, and suggested that large-type brook trout are lake specialists, whereas small-type trout are stream specialists, stream–lake generalists, or some mixture of the two.
