G. Power

Abstract


Information is presented on distribution of landlocked salmon, including the Hamilton, Upper George, Koksoak and Larch Rivers, Knob and other lakes in Quebec-Labrador. Size, weight and growth rate are given on the Ouananiche (landlocked) salmon of Lakes Astray and Aigneau. Theories on the origin and distribution of Atlantic freshwater salmon are discussed; effects of climate and isolation are considered.
