Population structure and the application to genetic stock identification for steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss) in the Nass and Skeena Rivers in northern British Columbia was examined using microsatellite markers. Variation at 8 microsatellite loci (Oki200, Omy77, Ots1, Ots3, Ssa85, Ots100, Ots103, and Ots108) was surveyed for approximately 930 steelhead from(More)
The RSC chromatin remodeling complex has been implicated in contributing to DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair in a number of studies. Both survival and levels of H2A phosphorylation in response to damage are reduced in the absence of RSC. Importantly, there is evidence for two isoforms of this complex, defined by the presence of either Rsc1 or Rsc2.(More)
Two small-sized and two large-sized male pink salmon (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) were mated to each of four females, producing eight families sired by small males and eight sired by large males. The juveniles were reared for 500 d after fry emergence. Juvenile weight in the two male size classes was similar until the spring of the year of maturity, when(More)
Juvenile sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka that were reared and smolted in laboratory conditions were found to produce otolith daily increments, as well as a consistently visible marine-entry check formed during their transition to salt water. Field-collected O. nerka post-smolts of an equivalent age also displayed visible checks; however, microchemistry(More)
