Though farmed salmon makes up the vast majority of salmon products sold in U. A high prevalence of disease. Saltas is an industry co-operative and is the leading hatchery for improved seed stock for the industry. The entire industry is valued at $5million . The potential risks of genetically modified fish escaping into the wild are highlighted in a new study.

Our focus in salmon is to breed for high quality salmon eggs and smolts with the best survival, health and growth rates possible. Our genetic bran Landcatch, contributes to the success of salmon producers as well as the development of the global salmon industry. Veronika Meduna visits a salmon hatchery to find out more about how salmon are bred and farme and about the family tree of each fish. Each year mature salmon make the long journey back to their natal river to reproduce, just once. At two to seven years ol salmon are ready to spawn.

Some salmon lay eggs only once and other species spawn many times. In the fall, mature salmon change color, and return from the ocean to the spawning beds from where they were hatched. The amazing process begins with the female digging a hole in the gravel .

Every year usually between November and January the rivers of the North East are full of life as Salmon, Sea trout and Brown trout come to lay their eggs in the oxygen rich, clean gravels.

This occurs along with changes in body shape especially to the jaws and teeth. Although species patterns are distinctive there can be considerable fish to fish differences in color within and among locations. Salmon that survive fishermen, poachers and pollution may still have to scale large dams built across rivers before eventually finding refuge in lakes and deep pools.

Arriving upstream on their spawning grounds among big boulders in icy headwaters the life cycle begins again, so ensuring survival of the species for another .

New findings have revealed differences in the heritability of EPA and DHA in Atlantic salmon. Once the salmon reach freshwater, they stop feeding. This is important knowledge for breeders. During the course of the journey, their bodies intinctively prepare for spawning. The taxing journey draws energy from their fat storage, muscles, and organs, except for the reproductive organs.

Males develop hooked noses, or kype, in order to fight for . A DFO scientist says farmed salmon breeding with wild ones along the south coast is having an impact on populations, although far more study is needed.
