This meeting will feature several panels of distinguished scientists discussing issues and ideas of relevance to anyone interested in learning more about stream salmonids. Although the “Ecological Aim & Scope” is broad in nature, a preliminary list of proposed sessions is shown below (open to changes upon request):


  1.- Life history strategies and variation

  2.- Population dynamics including the influence of habitat on distribution and abundance

  3.- Population genetics and related topics

  4.- Migration, movements and dispersal

  5.- Behavioral and foraging ecology

  6.- Human impacts (including the global change) on salmonid populations

  7.- Salmonids as invasive species

  8.- Restoration of native populations and their habitats.

  9.- Long-term studies in stream-living salmonids

10.- Explore how we move from scientific knowledge to conservation principles to ensure the long-term viability and evolutionary course of salmonids.

11.- Understanding the vulnerability of stream salmonids and habitats to both climate change and climate variability.


As in previous meetings, this symposium will provide an international forum to:

1.- Update our knowledge on the above topics

2.- Explore how we move from scientific knowledge to conservation principles to ensure the long-term viability and evolutionary course of salmonids.

3.- Evaluate mitigation of human impacts on their populations and reduce the impacts of exotic salmonids on native faunas wherever they have been introduced.


Presentations in the form of :

1.-  Any study providing insight into the major sessions above

2.-  Reviews and updated research of general interest

3.-  Posters session summarizing on-going research
