Where do smolts go?

Smolts are believed to move in schools while heading off to deep-sea feeding areas. While the best-known feeding locations are in the Norwegian Sea and the waters off Southwest Greenland, there are known to be many other sub-arctic feeding areas. Salmon that remain at sea for more than one winter undertake the longest migrations, but grilse tend not to travel beyond the Faroe Islands and the southern Norwegian Sea.
