Summary:
Mortality (19%-38%) of Atlantic salmon parr (Salmo salar) cultured at the Mersey Hatchery, Nova Scotia, has annually occurred during the third and fourth weeks after first feeding. The mortalities were attributed to the soft, acidic water of the Mersey River, which supplies the hatchery. Treatment of the hatchery water with calcium carbonate altered its chemical characteristics and enhanced the survival of salmon  Read more...

Abstract:

Mortality (19%-38%) of Atlantic salmon parr (Salmo salar) cultured at the Mersey Hatchery, Nova Scotia, has annually occurred during the third and fourth weeks after first feeding. The mortalities were attributed to the soft, acidic water of the Mersey River, which supplies the hatchery. Treatment of the hatchery water with calcium carbonate altered its chemical characteristics and enhanced the survival of salmon parr. The chemical characteristics of a number of other rivers which empty on the Atlantic side of mainland Nova Scotia were determined and related to their characteristic 25 years earlier and to the presence or absence of salmon populations.
