Acidification has caused the loss or reduction of numerous Atlantic salmon ( Salmo salar L.) populations on both sides of the North Atlantic. Acid deposition peaked in the 1980’s and resulted in both chronically and episodically acidified rivers. At present, water quality is improving in all affected rivers due to reduced acid deposition. However, spring snow melt, heavy rainfall and sea salt episodes can still cause short term drops in pH and elevated concentrations of bioavailable aluminum… CONTINUE READING
