- ... We determined the effect of maturation on parr growth and smolt recruitment of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) stocked in Vermont tributaries of the Connecticut River. Both among and within tributaries, mature parr ranged between 28 and 52% of the age-1 parr collected and up to 67% of the age-2 parr collected. Percent age-1 parr maturing in October-November was positively related to mean length the ...

- ... Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) that had previously been released as fry in tributaries of the Connecticut River were captured from 1993 to 1997 during their normal spring smolt migration 198 km from the mouth of the river. Smolts had peak levels of gill Na⁺,K⁺-ATPase activity and salinity tolerance early in migration (early May), indicating physiological readiness to enter seawater. Significant dec ...
