At what spatial scale should risk screenings of translocated freshwater fishes be undertaken – river basin district or climo-geographic designation?

Journal Article
Dodd, J., Vilizzi, L., Bean, C., Davison, P. I., & Copp, G. H. (2019)
At what spatial scale should risk screenings of translocated freshwater fishes be undertaken – river basin district or climo-geographic designation?. Biological Conservation, 230, 122-130
To inform aquatic conservation policy and management decisions, translocated freshwater fish species, i.e. those native to part but not all of Great Britain (GB), were assess...

Journal Article
Moore, I., Dodd, J. A., Newton, M., Bean, C. W., Lindsay, I., Jarosz, P., & Adams, C. E. (2018)
The influence of aquaculture unit proximity on the pattern of Lepeophtheirus salmonis infection of anadromous Salmo trutta populations on the isle of Skye, Scotland. Journal of Fish Biology, 92(6), 1849-1865. https://doi.org/10.1111/jfb.13625
A total of 230 anadromous Salmo trutta (brown trout) were sampled in five sheltered coastal fjords (or sea lochs) on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, U.K., in 2016 at varying dista...

Density- and species-dependent errors in single-pass timed electrofishing assessment of riverine salmonids

Journal Article
Honkanen, H. M., Dodd, J. A., Fordyce, J. R., Boylan, P., & Adams, C. E. (2018)
Density- and species-dependent errors in single-pass timed electrofishing assessment of riverine salmonids. Ecology of Freshwater Fish, 27(1), 98-102. https://doi.org/10.1111/eff.12327
Electrofishing techniques are widely used for the estimation of the size of stream‐dwelling fish populations for both fishery management and scientific study. In contrast to m...

A test of the cumulative effect of river weirs on downstream migration success, speed and mortality of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) smolts: An empirical study

Journal Article
Newton, M., Barry, J., Dodd, J. A., Lucas, M. C., Boylan, P., & Adams, C. E. (2019)
A test of the cumulative effect of river weirs on downstream migration success, speed and mortality of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) smolts: An empirical study. Ecology of Freshwater Fish, 28(1), 176-186. https://doi.org/10.1111/eff.12441
This study investigated the cumulative impact of weirs on the downstream migration of wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) smolts in the River Foyle, Northern Ireland. In spring...

Life stage-specific, stochastic environmental effects overlay density dependence in an Atlantic salmon population

Journal Article
Honkanen, H. M., Boylan, P., Dodd, J. A., & Adams, C. E. (2019)
Life stage-specific, stochastic environmental effects overlay density dependence in an Atlantic salmon population. Ecology of Freshwater Fish, 28(1), 156-166. https://doi.org/10.1111/eff.12439
Atlantic salmon populations appear to fluctuate stochastically through time. It is suspected that both density‐dependent and density‐independent factors cause these fluctuatio...

The impact of a small-scale riverine obstacle on the upstream migration of Atlantic Salmon

Journal Article
Newton, M., Dodd, J. A., Barry, J., Boylan, P., & Adams, C. E. (2018)
The impact of a small-scale riverine obstacle on the upstream migration of Atlantic Salmon. Hydrobiologia, 806(1), 251-264. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10750-017-3364-3
The behaviour of returning Salmo salar (Linnaeus, 1758) approaching, and attempting to pass low-head weirs remains relatively unknown. A radio telemetry array was created at a...

The effect of foraging and ontogeny on the prevalence and intensity of the invasive parasite Anguillicola crassus in the European eel Anguilla anguilla

Journal Article

Infection patterns of the invasive Anguillicola crassus nematode were investigated in a population of the European eel Anguilla anguilla where parasite invasion is very recent...

Predators vs. alien: differential biotic resistance to an invasive species by two resident predators

Journal Article
MacNeil, C., Dick, J., Alexander, M., Dodd, J., & Ricciardi, A. (2013)
Predators vs. alien: differential biotic resistance to an invasive species by two resident predators. NeoBiota, 19, 1-19. https://doi.org/10.3897/neobiota.19.4839
The success of invading species can be restricted by interspecific interactions such as competition and predation (i.e. biotic resistance) from resident species, which may be ...
