Abstract: Since tagging of smolts began in Ireland there have been sixteen distant water recaptures of adult salmon tagged as smolts or parr in Irish waters. Fifteen of these were recaptured from the Greenland fishery and one salmon was recovered from the Faroe Islands. The recaptures resulted from a number of salmon smolt and salmon parr tagging programmes. Some of these programmes were designed specifically to obtain information on the distant migrations of Irish salmon but other programmes were to study migrations and mortality in the home waters. Information on recaptures has been published elsewhere (Piggins 1970, Went 1973). This leaflet brings together all the available information on recaptures of tagged Irish salmon in distant waters up to December 1975 and gives background information on the tagging programmes.
