The rheotactic responses of three species of juvenile Pacific salmon (genus Oncorhynchus) were studied under varying temperature conditions. Rheotaxis is predominantly positive at lower temperatures but frequently becomes actively negative at higher temperatures. A positive response was usual at temperatures which normally prevail during the seaward migration of these fish. The presence or absence of shelter may markedly modify rheotactic responses. If exposed to light young salmon may show a negative rheotaxis while a positive response occurs if shelter is available.
