Stehfest, K, Research shows salmon will avoid warm water and low oxygen levels, The Mercury, News Corp Australia, Hobart, Australia (2017) [Newspaper Article]
ATLANTIC salmon caged in Macquarie Harbour could be building up a tolerance to low dissolved oxygen levels, new research suggests.
The study, which used fish-borne sensors to monitor stock in Huon Aquaculture’s cages, found that in hot conditions, the salmon would congregate in the middle depths of their pens to avoid warm surface waters and low oxygen levels.
