Phenotypic plasticity in morphology is often considered adaptive. Stream-living fish encounter considerable spatial and temporal environmental variation in their native habitats, and the ability to adapt to this variation is of utmost importance. We studied experimentally whether water velocity affects the body shape of juvenile Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar m. sebago Girard) and brown trout (Salmo trutta m. lacustris L.). The fish were reared in slow and fast water flow, and their morphology… CONTINUE READING
