Sockeye salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka), brown trout (Salmo trutta) and Japanese trout (Salvelinus leucomaenis) showed inhibition of digging and swimming behavior against the flow in water slightly acidic (5.8-6.4) compared to neutral pH (6.8-7.1) (IKUTA et al., 2003).
Visiting Russian scientists collected some adult specimens from the hatchery to compare skull morphology with that of the bull trout's close kin, the white-spotted char (Salvelinus leucomaenis).
