  • The latest paper from the Girnock “Quantifying the relative importance of stock level, river temperature and discharge on the abundance of juvenile Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)” has been published. This paper brings together >50 years of data on adult number, ova deposition and juvenile production, the latest developments in hydrological and river temperature modelling and methods developed at FFL for modelling salmon abundance on river networks to assess the relative effects of environment and natural population regulation on juvenile salmon production. The headline finding is that most of the year to year variability in observed juvenile numbers could be explained by stock level and that discharge temperature and artificial stocking effects were much smaller.
