The River Ribble drains into the Irish sea on the West coast of England. The estuary is approximately 20Km long, tunnel shaped, tapering from a 100m width at Preston dock to 5 km at Lytham where it enters the sea. This is a preliminary report on a study of oxygen requirements of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)and sea trout (Salmo trutta) in an estuary. Oxygen sending transmitters attached to fish were used to determine exposure of individuals to different dissolved oxygen concentrations as they moved in from the sea through the estuary of the River Ribble. This estuary is subject to extreme variations in dissolved oxygen concentrations. This report is based on the latest transcription and analysis of data completed in October 1983. The aim of this report is to give an overview of the work done and conclusions which are apparent at this stage.
