Genetic considerations in recovery efforts for Pacific salmon

Genetic considerations in recovery efforts for Pacific salmon

Conservation Biology 8.3

Populations of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) are in decline. If the restoration of viable, self-sustaining populations is to be successful, it is essential to conserve the genetic resources. This paper considers the importance of identifying the appropriate unit for conservation in order to maintain genetic diversity, the genetic risks to natural populations from releases from salmon hatcheries, and the importance of inbreeding and outbreeding.
