Salinity tolerance and the physiology of seawater entry in downstream migrating Atlantic salmon smolts

Physiology of Atlantic salmon smolts

Duration

January 2005 - January 2016

Narrative

The transition from fresh water to seawater is a critical developmental stage called "smolting". Understanding the physiological and behavioral mechanisms is a central to this project.
