Migration success and migration time of gastrically radio-tagged v. PIT-tagged adult Atlantic salmon
Abstract:Adult Atlantic salmon (55–116 cm total length) with PIT-tags (n= 318) and both PIT-tags and gastric radio-tags (n= 127) in a regulated river showed similar upstream migration success, yet radio-tagged fish migrated faster than fish with only PIT-tags. Regurgitation rate of radio-tags was 9%.
