SONIC TRACKING OF ADULT SALMON AT BONNEVILLE DAM, 1957 Adult salmon bearing miniature sonic transmitters were tracked individually in the forebay of Bonneville Dam. Fish were tracked as far as 10 miles upstream and for periods Fish farming or pisciculture involves raising fish commercially in tanks or enclosures, usually for food. It is the principal form of aquaculture, while other methods may fall under mariculture. A facility that releases juvenile fish into the wild for recreational fishing or to supplement a species' natural numbers is generally referred to as a fish hatchery. Worldwide, the most important fish species used in fish farming are carp, tilapia, salmon, and catfish.[1] There is an increasing demand for fish and fish protein, which has resulted in widespread overfishing in wild fisheries, China holding 62 percent of the world's fish farming practice.[2] Fish farming offers fish marketers another source. However, farming carnivorous fish, such as salmon, does not always reduce pressure on wild fisheries, since carnivorous farmed fish are usually fed fishmeal and fish oil extracted from wild forage fish. The global returns for fish farming recorded by the FAO in 2008 totalled 33.8 million tonnes worth about $US 60 billion.[3] In 2005, aquaculture represented 40% of the 157.5 million tons of seafood that was produced, meaning that it has become a critical part of our world's food source even though the industry is still technically in its 'infancy' and didn't really become well known until the 1970s. Because of this rise in aquaculture, there has been a rise in the per capita availability of seafood globally within the last few decades.[4] ranging up to 16% hours. In the release area adjacent to the dam, the fish seldom swam more than 50 feet away from shore or remained away from it for more than 2 minutes at a time. After leaving the dam most fish followed the shoreline near which they were released; they rarely swam in water more than 30 feet deep. During daylight the average speed at which they traveled over the bottom was 1.5 miles per hour, and their net rate ofmovement upstream was 1.2 miles per hour. Each of the three fish tracked from daylight into darkness slowed its pace or ceased swimming as darkness deepened.
