Radio telemetry was utilized to track 38 Atlantic salmon Salmo salar across space and time during and following their spawning run on the Conon system, Scotland. The data collected were used to assess the proportion of S. salar able to migrate successfully from an upland oligotrophic area of the catchment and the distribution of the carcasses of those fish that remained. Of these fish, 35% successfully migrated from the study area after the spawning period. The fish that remained were distributed approximately equally between riverine and lacustrine areas, but with a strong tendency to accumulate in regions of relatively slow water flows.
