Genetic homogenization has been recognized as a serious threat in an increasing number of species, including many salmonid fishes. We assessed the rate and impact of immigration from the main hatchery stocks of Atlantic salmon in the Gulf of Bothnia into one of the largest wild salmon populations in the Baltic Sea, the River Vindelälven, within a temporal framework of 18 years (from 1985–2003). We provide genetic evidence based on mtDNA and microsatellite markers, using mixed-stock analysis… CONTINUE READING
