    Notes: Abstract – We examined the prey capture success of recently emerged brook charr (Salvelinus fontinalis) foraging in shallow, clear, still-water pools along the edges of streams. Fewer than 42% of attacks ended with ingestion either because of difficulty distinguishing suitable prey from unsuitable items or because of difficulty capturing evasive prey. Probabilities of capture upon attack and ingestion upon capture depended upon where attacks were directed in the water column, the fish's level of activity at the time of attack and its fork length, and the sampling date. In general, success was higher for larger, sedentary fish attacking prey in the lower portion of the water column than for smaller, active fish attacking prey at the water surface. The frequency of items attacked was only a moderate predictor of the frequency of prey ingested. Poor capture success is an important aspect of the early life history of brook charr in particular and probably of young salmonines in general./〉

    Notes: Abstract –  We measured the growth and mortality characteristics of northern pike (Esox lucius) in a northern Ontario river and examined the influence of flow on these characteristics by comparing our measurements with those estimated for a lake at the same latitude based on published studies. Pike ranged in total length from 229 to 784 mm, in mass from 70 to 4250 g, and in age from 1 to 10 years. The population showed a preponderance of 2–5-year olds, with few fish surviving beyond 7 years of age. Growth, in terms of length increase, was similar to that reported for circumpolar populations. Mean total length at 5 years of age was 577 mm, growth rate of young adults was 62.5 mm year−1, growth was isometric, longevity was 10 years of age, and the adult annual mortality rate was 49%. Growth and mortality characteristics of this riverine population were similar to those estimated for a lacustrine population at the same latitude. Flow thus had little measurable effect on the growth or mortality of pike possibly because of the overwhelming effect of other abiotic variables such as temperature, length of growing season and productivity. Consequently, growth characteristics of lacustrine populations can be used to assess the health and condition of riverine populations.

    Notes: Abstract –  We examined the effects of two salmonid species, chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tschwaytscha) and brown trout (Salmo trutta), both exotic species to Lake Ontario, on behaviour and foraging success of juvenile Atlantic salmon (S. salar), a native species to Lake Ontario, in an artificial stream. We found that both exotic species have effects on Atlantic salmon behaviour, but that neither had an effect on foraging success. These results may explain why the Atlantic salmon re-introduction programme in Lake Ontario has had little success, as more than 3 million exotic salmonids are released in Lake Ontario streams annually.

    Notes: Abstract –  Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) was once native to Lake Ontario, however, its numbers rapidly declined following colonisation by Europeans and the species was extirpated by 1896. Government agencies surrounding Lake Ontario are currently undertaking a variety of studies to assess the feasibility of reintroducing Atlantic salmon. We released hatchery-reared adult Atlantic salmon into a Lake Ontario tributary to examine spawning interactions between this species and fall-spawning exotic salmonids found in the same stream. Chinook salmon, coho salmon and brown trout were observed interacting with spawning Atlantic salmon in nearly one-quarter of our observation bouts, with chinook salmon interacting most frequently. Whereas a previous investigation found that chinook salmon caused elevated agonistic behaviour and general activity by spawning Atlantic salmon, the present study found that interspecific courtship was the most common form of exotic interaction with spawning Atlantic salmon. In particular, we observed precocial male Chinook salmon courting female Atlantic salmon and defending the female against approach by male Atlantic salmon. We discuss the potential implications of these interactions on the Lake Ontario Atlantic salmon reintroduction programme.

    Notes: The relationships among time of spawning, incubation temperature, timing of first feeding and early growth were examined in four sympatric morphs of Arctic charr in Thingvallavatn, Iceland. Large benthivorous charr spawn in July-August at sites with cold ground-water flow. Planktivorous and piscivorous charr spawn in September-November and are not confined to ground-water sites. The spawning of small benthivorous charr overlaps with that of other morphs. Progeny of large benthivorous charr start feeding 2-3 months earlier than the progeny of autumn spawners. This results in differential size distribution and growth rates of young in the spring.

    Notes: The size distributions of invertebrates in drift samples and stomachs of juvenile brook charr, Salvelinus fontinalis, were compared to test Dunbrack & Dill's (1983) model which predicts the size composition of the diet of stream salmonids. Prey less than 0.4 mm wide were less common in the diet than in the drift, while prey greater than 0.6 mm wide were more common. The behavioural model of Dunbrack & Dill (1983) predicted the actual diet reasonably well, although there were significant differences between the predicted and observed diets in three of four cases.

    Notes: The photobehaviour of young rainbow trout was studied from the time of hatching to completed emergence using an artificial turf substrate incubation system. At all light energies tested, free-embryos initiated a substantial downward movement and rates of fish descent did not appear to reflect the order of light energy levels. A nocturnal activity rhythm was established early in the downward phase. The occurrence of a rapid photoresponse shift 21 days after hatching coincided with the synchronous onset of emergence in all fish groups and the depletion of 85% (by volume) of the yolk reserve. Concurrent morphological observations indicated that the photoresponse change occurred when fish were about 25 mm long, and when paired and median fins were fully developed.

    Notes: In the field, juvenile brook charr Salvelinus fontinalis inhabiting high-velocity water were found to have larger caudal fins and more slender bodies than those inhabiting low-velocity water. Young-of-the-year S. fontinalis were reared in either a high- or low-velocity treatment for 16 weeks and their morphology was measured bi-weekly. From the second to fourth weeks of the experiment onwards, fish reared in the high-velocity treatment had larger maximum caudal fin heights and deeper caudal peduncles than fish reared in the low-velocity treatment. This study demonstrated that the morphological variation in caudal area exhibited by wild juvenile brook charr from microhabitats differing in water velocity could be a consequence of phenotypic plasticity in response to hydrological conditions.

    Notes: While pure chromium undergoes a first-order antiferromagnetic transition, thermal expansion measurements have indicated that the addition of small amounts of vanadium and molybdenum make the Néel transition continuous. A neutron diffraction study of a single crystal of Cr(0.5% V) showed no discontinuity in magnetic Bragg satellite intensity at the Néel temperature, TN=254 K, that would indicate a first-order transition. Complicated behavior of the satellite intensities near the transition temperature is attributed to inhomogeneous strain in the sample. The satellite intensity showed a linear temperature dependence over a range of at least 100 K below TN.
