Trout Research at the University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow has a strong and ever-developing group of researchers looking at aspects of trout ecology, under the guidance of Prof Colin Adams, based at the University’s Scottish Centre for Ecology and the Natural Environment (SCENE) on the shores of Loch Lomond. See http://​www​.gla​.ac​.uk/​r​e​s​e​a​r​c​h​i​n​s​t​i​t​u​t​e​s​/​b​a​h​c​m​/​r​e​s​e​a​r​c​h​f​a​c​i​l​i​t​i​e​s​g​r​o​u​p​s​/​s​cene/

Trout-related projects include studies on genetics, population structuring, impacts of predation, sea trout life history strategies and ferox trout.
The research student looking at ferox is Martin Hughes who has a great page on Facebook where you can keep up with his work: https://​www​.face​book​.com/​f​e​r​o​x​p​r​oject.
Martin is currently rearing some ferox eggs gathered from Wester Ross — exciting and nerve-wracking times!

WTT will keep in touch with SCENE’s trout group and use its newsletters and journal, Salmo Trutta, to spread word of what the research tells us.
