Fish. Within the present North American range of Atlantic salmon, severe acid rain effects are limited to the Southern Upland area of Nova Scotia. In the Southern Upland, long range transport of H2SO4 has caused many rivers to decline in pH to the point where their Atlantic salmon stocks have been destroyed or much diminished.

Chemical records show a declining pH trend in N.S. rivers since Cited by: In half a tragic lifetime, Nova Scotia has sacrificed 23 Bay of Fundy rivers to stock collapse and 34 Atlantic coast rivers to acid rain, with a further 16 rivers acid-damaged.

In other words, within 30 short years, the vast majority of Nova Scotia salmon runs have been destroyed. New England’s Rivers and Atlantic Salmon Terry A. Haines The Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) is an anadromous fish native to the north Atlantic region.

Severely acidified rivers have received much atten-tion, but recent studies suggest that acidic episodes of short duration may have effects on Atlantic salmon populations in. Since the beginning of the 's, research has continued to clarify and improve our understanding of the problern of the ecological impact of acidic precipitation.

From September, Canada convened the the Muskoka Symposium on Acidic Precipitation to review progress and help chart the. Aluminium in acidic river water causes mortality of farmed Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar L.) Al in acidified freshwater is mobilised from soils by acid precipitation, and is the main cause for fish mortality in Norwegian rivers Two groups of Atlantic salmon were present, stocked in Cited by: Abstract.

Ecological and toxicological data from field studies on acidic rivers of Nova Scotia were examined to review the effects of low pH on Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) populations in waters rich in organic acids where noexchangeable forms of Al dominate at all were no survival of salmon past the dry stage at pH Cited by: The Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) is a species of ray-finned fish in the family Salmonidae which is the largest salmon and can grow up to a meter in length.

It is found in the northern Atlantic Ocean and in rivers that flow into this ocean. Most populations of this fish species are anadromous, hatching in streams and rivers but moving out to sea as they grow where they mature, after which the Family: Salmonidae.
