Salmonid Fisheries is a landmark publication, concentrating on
river management, habitat restoration and rehabilitation,
disseminating lessons learnt in relation to the intensively studied
salmonids that are applicable to future interventions, not just for
salmonid species but for other non-salmonid species, biota and
ecosystems. The contents of this book are the product of the
Atlantic Salmon Trust's 40th Anniversary Conference, held in
association with the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust.
Drawing together carefully-edited contributions from many of the
world leaders in river restoration from academia, commercial
management and government agencies, this important book highlights
the need to view river management from the context of the catchment
and to adopt an ecosystem-based approach to restoration. The book
is broadly divided into two sections which discuss first, the
status of current understanding concerning the relationship between
lotic habitat management, the response of salmonid fisheries and
the theory of river restoration, and secondly, the application of
this to habitat management and river restoration.
Salmonid Fisheries is an extremely valuable work of reference
for fisheries managers, ecologists, environmental scientists, fish
biologists, conservation biologists and geomorphologists. Libraries
in all universities and research establishments where biological
and earth sciences, and fisheries management are studied or taught
should have copies of this book on their shelves.Contributions from
