1998; Rikardsen & Dempson 2011 [Chapter 5]). Within a given watershed, smolts from upper tributaries generally begin migration earlier than those from lower tributaries. This results in a synchronised sea entry for smolts from within the entire watershed (Stewart et al. 2006). It is believed that smolts use different environmental cues in the rivers that are predictably correlated with favourable ocean conditions to control movements so that they arrive at sea at an appropriate time (Hvidsten et al.

Many self-sustaining populations have disappeared or are endangered due to human impacts, and the species range has generally contracted and fragmented (WWF 2001; Webb et al. 2007). Nearly 90% of the known healthy populations are now found in four countries (Norway, Iceland, Scotland and Ireland; WWF 2001). In the remainder of the range, 85% of the populations are categorised as vulnerable, endangered or critical, and the species is on the brink of extinction in Portugal, Estonia, Poland, the United States and southern parts of Canada.

Maximum potential swimming speeds in fish depend on body length (Beamish 1978; Videler & Wardle 1991), among other factors. Maximum swimming speeds for Atlantic salmon grilse (50–60 cm body length) are at least 4 m s−1, or 8 body lengths s−1, according to laboratory studies over 18–20 m distances (Booth et al. 1996; Colavecchia 1998). 4 body lengths s−1, were reported for larger salmon (75–85 cm body length) by Beamish (1978). Maximum swimming speeds in nature are likely to be higher than those recorded under laboratory conditions.
