  1. 1. Fish coping with stress-Physiology and behaviour in salmonids with focus on stress coping styles, rearing conditions and smolt migration

    Author : Malin Rosengren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Behaviour; Conservation; Cortisol; Intestinal barrier function; Metabolism; Salmonids; Stress; Stress coping styles;

    Abstract : When animals are reared for conservational releases it is paramount to avoid reducing genetic and phenotypic variation over time. Therefore, an understanding of how behavioural and physiological traits affect the performance of an individual both within the captive and the wild environment is required. READ MORE

  2. 2. Habitat compensation in nature-like fishways Effects on benthos and fish

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Stina Gustafsson; Karlstads universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biocanal; biodiversity; brown trout; freshwater pearl mussel; functional feeding groups; habitat heterogeneity; large woody debris; macroinvertebrates; PIT-tag; salmonids; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : The construction of nature-like fishways has become an increasingly common measure to restore longitudinal connectivity in streams and rivers affected by hydroelectric development. These fishways also have the potential to function as habitat compensation measures when running waters have been degraded or lost. READ MORE

  4. 4. Winter behaviour of stream salmonids: effects of temperature, light, and ice cover

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstads universitet

    Author : Johan Watz; Karlstads universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stream salmonids; winter behaviour; efftect of temperatur; light; ice cover; environment; fish populations; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : In boreal streams, stream salmonids typically face low water temperatures and variable ice conditions during winter, and thus stream salmonids are expected to use different behavioural strategies to cope with these environmental conditions. The studies presented in this thesis explore how temperature, light intensity, and surface ice affect salmonid behaviour, with focus on drift-feeding and ventilation rates. READ MORE

  5. 5. Leptin endocrinology and energy homeostasis in salmonids

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Marcus Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Leptin; Leptin binding-protein; Energy homeostasis; Oncorhynchus mykiss; Salvelinus alpinus; Adiposity; Food intake; Fasting; Refeeding; Catabolism; Anorexia;

    Abstract : In salmonids, the physiological role of leptin is not completely elucidated. Nonetheless, the anorexigenic effect of leptin indicates a role in their energy homeostasis. This thesis focuses on advancing the understanding of the involvement of the leptin system in the regulation of energy homeo-stasis and food intake in teleost fish. READ MORE
