Influence of hunger level and food availability on the spatial distribution of Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., in sea cages


Influence of hunger level and food availability on the spatial distribution of Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., in sea cages



Aquaculture and Fisheries Management 25(4): 439-451



DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2109.1994.tb00709.x

The spatial distribution of Atlantic salmon, (Salmo salar), in sea cages was observed by echo integration, which measured fish density at seven 1-m depth intervals. At start of feeding fish swam towards the surface and into the centre of the cage with a subsequent movement downwards and towards the periphery as hunger was reduced. These changes were more rapid at high than low feeding intensities.
