dc.description.abstractAtlantic salmon (Salmo salar) returns to rivers in Ireland have fallen in the last decade resulting in the dramatic closure or curtailment of tradi- tional fisheries. Concerns that stocks were slow to recover prompted further investigation of all factors believed to impact on salmon. In exam- ining geographic and temporal trends in Atlantic salmon stock abundance at a River Basin Dis- trict level, the effect of salmon aquaculture sites and freshwater habitat quality as potential driv- ers of stock abundance are evaluated. This study found no correlation between the pres- ence of aquaculture and the performance of ad- jacent wild salmon stocks. Freshwater habitat quality was found to have a highly significant correlation with stock status, suggesting that it may be a key driver, implicated in the survival of individual stocks.en_GB
