Evolutionary effects of alternative artificial propagation programs: implications for viability of endangered anadromous salmonids

Abstract

Most hatchery programs for anadromous salmonids have been initiated to increase the numbers of fish for harvest, to mitigate for habitat losses, or to increase abundance in populations at low abundance. However, the manner in which these programs are implemented can have significant impacts on the evolutionary trajectory and long-term viability of… (More)
