Ontogenetic dynamics of infection with Diphyllobothrium spp. cestodes in sympatric Arctic charr Salvelinus alpinus (L.) and brown trout Salmo trutta L.
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-23)
The trophic niches of Arctic charr and brown trout differ when the species occur in sympatry . Their trophically transmitted parasit es are expected to reflect these differences. Here , we investigate how the infections of Diphyllobothrium dendriticum and Diphyllobothrium ditremum differ between charr and trout. These tapeworms use copepods ...
Long-term ecological studies in northern lakes – challenges, experiences, and accomplishments
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-15)
We review three long‐term research programs performed over the last four decades on the ecology and management of oligotrophic lake systems with different fish communities at 69° N in Norway. Through whole‐lake perturbation experiments, intensive culling of stunted fish removed 35 tons (1984–1991) of Arctic charr <i>Salvelinus alpinus</i> in Takvatn (15 km<sup>2</sup>) and 153 tons (1981–1983, ...
Fish culling reduces tapeworm burden in Arctic charr by increasing parasite mortality rather than by reducing density-dependent transmission
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-25)
<ol> <li>Two common <i>Dibothriocephalus</i> (formerly <i>Diphyllobothrium</i>) tapeworm species were significantly reduced by experimental culling of their fish host Arctic charr (<i>Salvelinus alpinus</i>) in a subarctic lake.</li><p> <p><li>Between 1984 and 1991, funnel traps were used to cull ~35 metric tons of Arctic charr, reducing charr density by ~80%. As charr densities decreased, ...
