Most bony fishes have small home ranges. Family traditions are plentiful as the young and young at heart enjoy time together. Food and habitat availability, reproduction, environmental cycles and temperature change may be causes of migration for some species. The causal relation between parasitic sea lice on fish farms and sea lice on wild fish is a controversial subject. • The scale count between adipose fin and lateral fin is higher in salmons than in sea trouts. Then the real excitement began. By Meagan Racey February 26, 2019.

A specific scientific debate has been whether the statistical association between infestation pressure (IP) from fish farms and the number of parasites observed on wild sea trout emerges purely because of a confounding and direct effect of temperature (T). The majestic Whooping Crane is the tallest bird in North America and has a wingspan of seven and a half feet. A biologist took a count of spotted trout that migrate to the south end of a lake during the winter months. Some species of bony fishes migrate great distances.
