Freshwater fish were, originally, absent from the Kerguelen islands (French Subantarctic and Antarctic Territories). Some salmonid species, introduced during the late fifties according to a policy of territorial development, acclimatized to the subantarctic environment and became naturalized more or less successfully according to their adaptive strategy. Being scientifically monitored, these populations seem to be excellent models for population genetics and dynamics.
