Investigations of the adaptability of two growth groups of coho salmon fry (1+ and 0+) while being transferred from freshwater (FW) into seawater (SW) were performed in the season autumn/winter on four locations. Average weight of the 1+ group was 116 g, and average weight of the 0+ group was 86 g. Changes in body composition and condition factor were examined immediately prior to SW transfer, during the early stages of smoltification and for a period of 30 days post-SW transfer. Fish samples (n=10/time point) were taken in FW, during the transport, and after the transfer into the sea. Results from the experiments demonstrate some differences in the adaptive fitness between the two age groups examined, with inferior adaptation being expressed by the 0+ group. Over the period of investigations an increase in body moisture and decreases in body lipids and proteins were observed, when compared against FW controls regardless of smolt age. This might be interpreted as indicating malnourishment due to aphagia, since appetite loss has been described in this, and other oncorhynchids during SW transfer.
