      Dolly Varden fry will spend two to four years rearing in natal streams (some anadromous fish may reside in freshwater only 2 years prior to migrating to the ocean). fry behavior once feeding, fry seek out relatively high velocity habitat such as riffles and runs.   In , Ted Cavender of Ohio State University carried out an extensive study of historical char specimens and in the American Fisheries Society recognized the bull trout (S. confluentus) and Dolly Varden (S. malma) as separate and distinct species. It is ironic that the name Dolly Varden was originally applied to what was actually a bull.

Idyll () and Shapovalov and Taft () reported predation by juvenile steelhead on salmon eggs in west coast streams. Roos () found that Dolly Varden utilized sockeye salmon eggs in Alaska.

The Dolly Varden trout (Salvelinus malma) is a species of salmonid native to cold-water tributaries of the Pacific Ocean in Asia and North is in the genus Salvelinus of true chars, which includes 51 recognized species, the most prominent being the brook, lake and bull trout, as well as Arctic gh many populations are semi-anadromous, fluvial and lacustrine populations Class: Actinopterygii.

This illustration of a Dolly Varden is from Evermann and Goldsborough's The Fishes of Alaska (). Photo via Wikipedia Like the two species to which is it closely related—Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus) and bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus)—the Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma) is a true char that is found.

The bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) is a char of the family Salmonidae native to northwestern North America. Historically, S. confluentus has been known as the "Dolly Varden" (S. malma), but was reclassified as a separate species in Bull trout are listed as a threatened species under the U.S.

[Robert H Armstrong]. Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma) are a facultatively anadromous salmonid common around much of the North Pacific Rim, but little is known about the environmental factors affecting the timing and.

Anadromous fish may spend years at sea, evidently near shore, migrate upstream usually in fall, and spawn during spring (Ref. Young remain in streams for years and feed on insects, leeches, snails, and salmon eggs (Ref. ) before entering brackish and salt water to feed on insects, fishes, and other invertebrates.

Dolly Varden char belongs to the family of salmon- and trout-like fishes. Two subspecies of Dolly Varden are recognized in Canada, the southern form (“Dolly Varden (Pacific populations)”) and the northern form (“Dolly Varden (Western Arctic populations)”).

The latter is the focus of this status report. As they mature, Dolly Varden (Western Arctic populations) change colour and shape. R.H.

Dolly Varden prey on a variety of aquatic invertebrates and fishes, and on terrestrial invertebrates when the opportunity presents. They forage near the surface of the substrate and seldom feed on. Although Dolly Varden do eat salmon eggs and salmon fry, they have not been found to be significant predators in areas where their feeding habits have been studied.

They primarily eat drifting salmon eggs that would not have hatched anyway. They are more of a scavenger than a predator.

Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma Walbaum) are locally abundant in all coastal waters of basic forms of Dolly Varden occur in Alaska waters.

The southern form ranges from lower Southeast Alaska to the tip of the Aleutian Chain, and the northern form is distributed on the north slope drainages of the Aleutian Range northward along Alaska’s coast to the Canada border.

Anadromous Dolly Varden Salvelinus malma in northeastern Alaska migrate to sea during the summer to feed but must overwinter in rivers because the sea under ice becomes too cold for salmonids.

Flow ceases in rivers during the winter except for a few perennial springs in which all fish congregate. The Canning River is one of the largest rivers in the area with numerous perennial.

Dolly Varden trout takes its name from a Charles Dickens’ novel, Barnaby Rudge, in which a character was in the habit of wearing very colorful clothes.

Dolly Varden trout is characterized by olive green or a gray back and sides, which fade to white towards the belly. Though traditionally assumed to be one and the same genus as the Dolly Varden, fisheries biologists recognized the unique nature of the bull trout in when the “Dolly,” Salvelinus malma, was given its own species-specific designation.

Bull trout are apex predators in their ecosystems, at least most of the time. Armstrong, R. H. a. Some Migratory Habits of the Anadromous Dolly Varden Salvelinus malma (Walbaum) in Southeast-ern Alaska. Alaska Dept. Fish Game, Res. Rep.

Mating occurs once a year in the fall between September and November. Some Dolly Varden may skip 1 to 2 years of spawning due to the physical taxation of spawning.
