Gene flow from stocked salmonids to wild populations (38273)

Project Details

Description

The aim of the project was to develop and implement genetic marker based methods to assess population characteristics, such as genetically effective population sizes and exchange of dispersers among salmonid populations, focusing on brown trout, Salmo trutta. Strong focus was on an assessment of the genetic effects of stocking wild populations based on releases of juveniles of native wild brood-stock or from domesticated hatchery strains. Analyses of temporal samples, both archived and continuously sampled, have contributed to an understanding of effects of stocking on wild populations on short to long term.
