Book Description

July 19 2010 1405183969 978-1405183963
Salmonid Fisheries is a landmark publication, concentrating on river management, habitat restoration and rehabilitation, disseminating lessons learnt in relation to the intensively studied salmonids that are applicable to future interventions, not just for salmonid species but for other non-salmonid species, biota and ecosystems. The contents of this book are the product of the Atlantic Salmon Trust’s 40th Anniversary Conference, held in association with the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust.

Drawing together carefully-edited contributions from many of the world leaders in river restoration from academia, commercial management and government agencies, this important book highlights the need to view river management from the context of the catchment and to adopt an ecosystem-based approach to restoration. The book is broadly divided into two sections which discuss first, the status of current understanding concerning the relationship between lotic habitat management, the response of salmonid fisheries and the theory of river restoration, and secondly, the application of this to habitat management and river restoration.

Salmonid Fisheries is an extremely valuable work of reference for fisheries managers, ecologists, environmental scientists, fish biologists, conservation biologists and geomorphologists. Libraries in all universities and research establishments where biological and earth sciences, and fisheries management are studied or taught should have copies of this book on their shelves.

  • Contributions from a wide range of well known experts
  • Published in association with the Atlantic Salmon Trust
  • Habitat management is crucial for dwindling wild salmon populations
  • Of great importance to aquatic ecologists and fisheries managers

Product Description

From the Back Cover

In recent years there has been considerable interest and work carried out in the area of habitiat management and remedial work in streams and rivers across the globe in an effort to benefit stocks on salmon and trout, which in many areas have seen declining wild populations.

This important book brings together contributions from many internationally renowned experts, highlighting many key aspects of the subject. Themes running through the book include habitat requirements for salmonids, catchment management, riparian zone management, within-channel habitat management, organisation, funding and execution of management work, monitoring and evaluation, and a conclusions section drawing together the book's main themes.

Salmonid Fisheries: Freshwater Habitat Management is a book that will be of great use and interest to a wide range of scientists and managers, including those working in fisheries management, habitat improvement, environmental sciences and ecology, and fish biology. Libraries in all research establishments and universities where these subjects are studied and taught should have copies of this work on their shelves.
