The feeding of Atlantic salmon parrs and smolts has been studied in the subarctic Varzuga River, Kola Peninsula. It has been shown that young salmon at the parr stage, which are resident in rivers and stay for long at individual microstations in rapids and pools, feed in spring markedly more successfully than transitory smolts migrating from the river.
