Abstract

Anadromous brook charr studied near Sept-Iles, Quebec, exhibit short but synchronized migratory movements, can enter brackish water at a small size, remain in coastal waters, grow rapidly while at sea, home effectively, and provide a potentially high yield to recreational and commercial fisheries. Anadromous brook charr, and possibly other Salvelinus, are reasonable candidates for local enhancement of coastal or estuarine salmonid fisheries and for sea ranching in northern latitudes. -from Authors
