Salmon populations where the entire life cycle is completed in fresh water (termed ‘freshwater resident’) occur in both North America and Europe. In North America, they are common throughout the entire distribution range. In Europe, freshwater resident populations occur in rivers and lakes of Russia (Lakes Ladoga, Onega, Kuito and at least six other lakes), Finland (Lake Saimaa), Sweden (Lake Vänern) and Norway (River Namsen, Lake Byglandsfjord) (Kazakov 1992).

Fish from both North America and Europe may be found on some of the same feeding grounds, such as off the western coast of Greenland (Hansen & Quinn 1998), and it has been proposed that salmon in the North Atlantic Ocean could be classified as a single trans-Atlantic straddling stock (Spares et al. 2007). However, tagging experiments have shown that Atlantic salmon from North America remain mainly in the western North Atlantic (Ritter 1989), in contrast to fish from Europe which are believed to feed mostly in the Norwegian Sea and the northeast Atlantic Ocean (Holm et al.

Today, many migrating species have a high economic value, including the Atlantic salmon.
