Given most Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) released by anglers survive (proportion = 0.97 in this study), economically and culturally important recreational Atlantic salmon fisheries are increasingly incorporating catch-and-release. Sublethal alterations to behaviour with potential individual fitness costs are a possible consequence of catch-and-release but are difficult to measure empirically relative to uncaptured fish. To test for sublethal effects of angling on migratory movements, 39 salmon… CONTINUE READING
