Heterosis and outbreeding depression between strains of young-of-the-year brook trout ( Salvelinus fontinalis )

  title={Heterosis and outbreeding depression between strains of young-of-the-year brook trout ( Salvelinus fontinalis )},
  author={Sarah Granier and C{\'e}line Audet and Louis Bernatchez},
Brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis (Mitchill, 1814)) supports a lucrative fish aquaculture industry in Quebec and production of this species is mainly oriented to stock enhancement supporting sport fisheries. The aim of this study was to verify the expression of interstrain heterosis, i.e., increased performance of first generation hybrid progeny, during the first stages of development in brook trout. Two wild populations that were recently introduced to fish production in Quebec, the Laval (L… CONTINUE READING
