The genus Midlandus on this page is, I believe, a spoof. I have removed it and I suggest it is not re-added without reference. Malcolm Morley 18:58, 16 May 2006 (UTC)
which link is correct ? or it's the same problem like salmon/salmonidae

The point in having two pages is that Salmonidae is a family of Salmoniformes. Salmon actually belong to the Subfamily of Salmonidae, that is called Salmoninae. Sounds totally confusing and strange I know but I am a zoologist. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 10:31, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
Hucho points only to the European species, Hucho hucho. No mention of the Asian (Siberian) Hucho taimen.
Nothing for Lenoks yet either, and there may be other deficiencies re Asian Salmonidae. Perhaps some international collaboration would be helpful to link experts in Russia, China, Mongolia, etc. with colleagues in the West who may be more comfortable with Wiki conventions.

Link to Hebrew page
There should be a link in the "Languages box" to the parallel page in Hebrew: http://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D7%A1%D7%9C%D7%9E%D7%95%D7%9F

"Salmon" vs "Trout"
I gather that the difference between salmon and trout is not taxonomic (i.e. there are "salmon" and "trout" scattered through all subranks of Salmonidae. Is there any practical distinction between them (in the way that, for example "toads" are Anura with dry, leathery skin and short legs, and "frogs" are all other Anura), or is it purely random and arbitrary?

Salmon Migrate and Trout are resident is generally the difference. They both belong to the Subfamily Salmoninae, of the Family Salmonidae, of the Order Salmoniformes, of the Superorder Protacanthopterygii, of the group Telesostei, of the group Neopterygii, of the group Actinopterygii, of the Class Osteichthyes. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 10:35, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
I am reading a non-WP:RS source which states that "trout are part of the salmon family which diverged from other bony fishes at the end of the Oligocene" Era, about 30 mya. And it goes on to talk about global cooling which suited the trout nicely. "Coldwater pioneers" it calls them. Not seeing that sort of thing here. Student7 (talk) 16:15, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
