According to presumed models, climate change will lead to an increase in the frequency and scale of droughts across Wales. The salmon, Salmo salar, and the brown trout, Salmo trutta, have essential ecological functions; they also have a substantial economic value. The aim is to quantify the population responses of salmonidae to drought through a combination of flow treatment experiments in the field, long-term data analysis at national level, and an analysis of international metadata.
