Predation on Atlantic salmon and sea trout during their first days as postsmolts

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Radio-tagged smolts of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar and sea trout Salmo trutta were predated heavily by sea birds after crossing the saline limit in the estuary of the River Skjern, Denmark. Most predation took place within the first 9 h after estuarine entry. The field data do not contradict the hypothesis of maladaptive anti-predatory behaviour.
