The hidden importance of small coastal streams for trout
Posted on December 07, 2015
Prof Ken Whelan, Research Director at the Atlantic Salmon Trust and Adjunct Professor at University College Dublin recently gave an outstanding online seminar (a “webinar”) for the Atlantic Salmon Conservation Foundation.
It’s a brilliant story of the adaptability and variety of trout (in appearance and behaviour) and the likely importance of small coastal streams for our sea trout populations. You’ll trip around the world, visiting places where trout are native or where we’ve taken them, then marvelled at their response in the wild: Ireland, the UK, Chile, the Falklands and even the Kerguelen Islands in the Indian Ocean.
You will need over 50 minutes for the full seminar, but it’s a fascinating listen and watch. Scroll down the page to ‘The hidden importance of small coastal streams’.
