Definition of Term

(English) Seasonal migration undertaken by fish, usually as part of their life history, e.g., spawning run of gemfish; upstream migration of whitebait.

Also used for transitional segments of streams, between a riffle and a pool, with moderate current and depth; for the direction in which netting is braided or for the regular movement of vessels between ports. (See also: life cycle, spawning, ripe fish)
