• Behaviour and survival of wild Atlantic salmon Salmo salar captured and released while surveillance angling for escaped farmed salmon 

      Lennox, Robert J.; Havn, Torgeir Børresen; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak; Liberg, Egil; Cooke, Steven J.; Uglem, Ingebrigt (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In many Norwegian rivers, spawning stocks are surveyed for escaped farmed salmon with surveillance fishing by rod and reel after the recreational angling season. However, the benefits of surveillance fishing depend on the ...

      1. Climate change poses a challenge to wild fishes, yet little is known about the behavioural use and metabolic consequences of thermally heterogeneous water encountered by wild salmon during their energetically demanding ...
    • Biotic and abiotic determinants of the ascent behaviour of adult Atlantic salmon transiting passable waterfalls 

      Lennox, Robert J.; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Økland, Finn; Cooke, Steven J.; Aasestad, Ingar; Forseth, Torbjørn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The spawning migration of Atlantic salmon has been characterized by tracking salmon carrying electronic tags as they ascend rivers, but still little is known about how natural obstacles such as waterfalls influence migratory ...
    • Does Catch-and-Release Angling Alter the Behavior and Fate of Adult Atlantic Salmon During Upriver Migration? 

      Lennox, Robert J.; Uglem, Ingebrigt; Cooke, Steven J.; Næsje, Tor; Whoriskey, Frederick G.; Havn, Torgeir Børresen; Ulvan, Eva Marita; Solem, Øyvind; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      To reproduce, Atlantic Salmon Salmo salar return to freshwater rivers and migrate upriver to spawning areas. This migration is the basis for recreational fisheries, which for conservation reasons are increasingly characterized ...
    • European eel Anguilla anguilla compromise speed for safety in the early marine spawning migration 

      Lennox, Robert J.; Økland, Finn; Mitamura, Hiromichi; Cooke, Steven J.; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      There are substantial benefits to potential fitness conferred to animals that undertake migrations. However, animals must make compromises to maximize survival and compensate for the risks associated with long-distance ...
    • Influence of gear switching on recapture of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in catch-and- release fisheries 

      Lennox, Robert J.; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Cooke, Steven J.; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak; Whoriskey, Frederick G.; Solem, Øyvind; Havn, Torgeir Børresen; Uglem, Ingebrigt (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Anglers that release Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in recreational fisheries do so with the intention that the fish will survive and contribute to succeeding generations. In some instances, salmon that are released may be ...
    • One Hundred Pressing Questions on the Future of Global Fish Migration Science, Conservation, and Policy 

      Lennox, Robert J.; Paukert, Craig P.; Aarestrup, Kim; Auger-Méthé, Marie; Baumgartner, Lee; Birnie-Gauvin, Kim; Bøe, Kristin; Brink, Kerry; Brownscombe, Jacob W.; Chen, Yushun; Davidsen, Jan Grimsrud; Eliason, Erika J.; Filous, Alexander; Gillanders, Bronwyn M.; Helland, Ingeborg Palm; Horodysky, Andrij Z.; Januchowski-Hartley, Stephanie R.; Lowerre-Barbieri, Susan K.; Lucas, Martyn C.; Martins, Eduardo G.; Murchie, Karen J.; Pompeu, Paulo S.; Power, Michael; Raghavan, Rajeev; Rahel, Frank J.; Secor, David; Thiem, Jason D.; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak; Ueda, Hiroshi; Whoriskey, Frederick G.; Cooke, Steven J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Migration is a widespread but highly diverse component of many animal life histories. Fish migrate throughout the world’s oceans, within lakes and rivers, and between the two realms, transporting matter, energy, and other ...
    • The effect of catch-and-release angling at high water temperatures on behaviour and survival of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar during spawning migration 

      Havn, Torgeir Børresen; Uglem, Ingebrigt; Solem, Øyvind; Cooke, Steven J.; Whoriskey, Frederick G.; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      In this study, behaviour and survival following catch-and-release (C&R) angling was investigated in wild Atlantic salmon Salmo salar (n = 75) angled on sport fishing gear in the River Otra in southern Norway at water ...
    • The future of fish passage science, engineering, and practice 

      Silva, Ana T.; Lucas, Martyn C.; Castro-Santos, Theodore; Katopodis, Christos; Baumgartner, Lee J.; Thiem, Jason D.; Aarestrup, Kim; Pompeu, Paulo S.; O'Brien, Gordon C.O.; Braun, Douglas C.; Burnett, Nicholas J.; Zhu, David Z.; Fjeldstad, Hans-Petter; Forseth, Torbjørn; Rajaratnam, Nallamuthu; Williams, John G.; Cooke, Steven J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
    • Use of simulation approaches to evaluate the consequences of catch-and-release angling on the migration behaviour of adult Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) 

      Lennox, Robert J.; Cooke, Steven J.; Diserud, Ola Håvard; Havn, Torgeir Børresen; Johansen, Martin R.; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak; Whoriskey, Frederick G.; Uglem, Ingebrigt (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Given most Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) released by anglers survive (proportion = 0.97 in this study), eco-nomically and culturally important recreational Atlantic salmon fisheries are increasingly incorporatingcatch-and-release. ...
