Occurrence of canthaxanthin in Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., fry in Irish rivers as an indicator of escaped farmed salmon



Occurrence of canthaxanthin in Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., fry in Irish rivers as an indicator of escaped farmed salmon



Fisheries Management and Ecology 7(5): 377-385



The rapid growth of Atlantic salmon culture in north-western Europe has given rise to concerns regarding the biological consequences of fish farm escapes on wild salmonid populations. Canthaxanthin, a carotenoid pigment additive to farmed salmon feed which is passed from females to their progeny, may be used as an indicator of the numbers of escaped farmed salmon which spawn in the wild.
