Potamodromous fishes were included in a group-by-group review by Lucas and Baras (2001) of the migration and life cycle characteristics of species representative of families of fishes exhibiting migration in fresh and brackish water environments. Lucas and Baras (2001) explained that information was limited for some groups of freshwater fishes mostly found in tropical freshwater regions. This was partly because USDA-Forest Service-Rocky Mountain Research Station, 322 East Front Street-Suite 401, Boise, Idaho 83702, USA.
1994). Movements related to the seeking of thermal refugia have also been reported for other potamodromous species. Brook trout migrated upstream in summer while seeking cold water refugia (Petty et al. 2012). Stevens and Dupont (2011) observed westslope cutthroat trout, rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss, and mountain whitefish Prosopium williamsoni moving into cooler Coeur d’Alene River side channels as main-river water temperatures increased. Movements and aggregations of salmonids seeking coldwater refugia in streams have also been documented for brook trout (Baird and Krueger 2003) and rainbow trout (Kaya et al.
Boucher (2004) reported that prior to 1868 landlocked salmon occurred naturally in four Maine River Basins. After extensive stocking, Maine supported one of the largest sport fisheries for landlocked salmon in the world with fisheries in 176 lakes and about 464 km of rivers and streams (Boucher 2004). Outside North America, other anadromous salmonid forms of Oncorhynchus including masu salmon Oncorhynchus masou, and Biwa trout Oncorhynchus rhodurus also develop potamodromous populations (Northcote 1997).
