Radio‐tagged adult Pacific lamprey Entosphenus tridentatus held in a raceway with Plexiglas‐lined walls and bottom healed more slowly and retained sutures longer than fish held in an all‐concrete raceway or one with Plexiglas walls and a cobble‐lined bottom. On all substrata, healing depended on when sutures were lost, and fish that lost their sutures in <14 days post‐surgery healed faster than those that kept sutures longer. Long‐term suture retention led to tissue trauma, infection and poor survival.
