A. erythrinus, S. a. oquassa, and S. a. taranetzi, which in aquaculture circles are known respectively as European charr, Canadian High Arctic charr, Sunapee charr, and Kamchatka charr (Fig. 1). Another group of charr occurs in Labrador (Labrador charr) and is more similar in form to the European charr than to the Canadian High Arctic charr. The timing and locations of divergence of these four subspecies are confused, but all originated in the advance and retreat of glacial icesheets in the last 2 million years (Johnson & Burns 1984).

Recirculation involves pumping water back through the tank system after it has been mechanically and biologically rejuvenated. Water moves in a predictable fashion through a culture facility, flowing from an incoming source, through the rearing environment, then through remediation and back to the wild. Incoming source water This is the water from the wild. Depending on its source, quantity, and chemical makeup, the incoming water may be suitable for all stages of Arctic charr growth or restricted to supporting only certain aspects of the life cycle.

When reared in their own groups, the wild charr showed evidence of aggressive interactions, caudal fin damage, and considerable mortality. The hatchery-reared fish displayed little evidence of fin damage and only low mortality. When the two groups were held together, the hatchery-reared charr had the most extensive caudal fin damage and showed weight loss and decreases in condition as well as higher mortality rates (Siikavuopio et al. 1996). A number of incidental accounts suggest that larger juvenile and adult Arctic charr in the wild tend to draw together into shoals and schools.
