Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n salmo The leading genus of Salmonidæ. It was formerly more than coextensive with the family as now understood, but is usually restricted to forms having the anal fin short, of only nine to eleven developed rays; the vomer flat, its surface plane and toothed; and the body spotted with black (not with red or silvery gray). In this sense the genus Salmo is exclusive of the chars (Salvelinus) and of the Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus.) But even thus restricted it contains two sets of species: True salmon, marine and anadromous, as S. salar, with the vomerine teeth little developed, no hyoid teeth, scales large, caudal fin well forked (truncate in old individuals), and sexual distinctions strong, the breeding males having the lower jaw hooked upward. Such salmon are sometimes landlocked, as the variety found in Sebago Lake, in Maine. See cut under parr.
