Allelic variation at 10 microsatellite loci was assayed in potentially wild Oncorhynchus mykiss 32 collected from 11 tributaries and three upper main stem river sites (n=547), and compared to steelhead 33 trout from the hatchery operated in the lower main stem river (n=333). The objective was to investigate 34 microgeographic genetic structure of wild O. mykiss , in the face of large-scale hatchery stocking since 35 1984. Measures of genetic diversity within wild samples indicated diversity… CONTINUE READING
