Abstract Mitochondrial DNA analysis of 16 walleyes Stizostedion vitreum originating from Luxapalila Creek in northeastern Mississippi showed that they were genetically distinct (2.34% sequence variation) from walleyes collected from the Mississippi River basin and other northern drainages. There was no genetic variation among the 16 fish analyzed. This work confirms the existence of a unique genetic form of walleye in the Tombigbee River drainage, but further research is required to determine… 
Genetic and Population Characteristics of Walleyes in the Mobile Drainage of Alabama
Abstract Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis conducted on walleyes Stizostedion vitreum collected in Alabama indicated that 44 fish from the Mobile drainage were of the recently described southern
A Genetic Assessment of Ohio River Walleyes
A lack of microsatellite differentiation between the two haplotypes detected in the same pool suggests that the fish are freely interbreeding.
Genetic variation in percids determined by mitochondrial DNA analysis
Abstract The extent of genetic variation and its geographic structure as revealed by mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis are reviewed for five percid species. Walleye (Stizostedion vitreum) has been
Genetic Identity of Walleye in the Cumberland River
Walleye from the upper Cumberland River drainage were examined by means of mitochondrial DNA restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis, microsatellite analysis of nuclear DNA, and sequencing of the mitochondrial DNA control region to determine if introgression occurs between the two stocks.
Mitochondrial DNA Sequence Variation in Saugers
The data support the hypothesis of a single glacial refugium within which sauger populations could have differentiated and a mismatch distribution analysis among haplotypes suggested a recent population expansion.
Population genetic structure, phylogeography and spawning philopatry in walleye (Stizostedion vitreum) from mitochondrial DNA control region sequences
Analysis of spawning populations showed consistency of genotypic frequencies among years and between males and females, supporting philopatry in both sexes, and revealed phylogeographic structure and significant differences among glacial refugia, lakes, basins and some spawning sites.
Genetic Population Structure and Mixed-Stock Analysis of Walleyes in the Lake Erie–Lake Huron Corridor using Allozyme and Mitochondrial DNA Markers
Abstract We used allozymes and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) restriction fragment length polymorphisms to determine if spawning populations of walleyes Stizostedion vitreum from the Lake Erie–Lake Huron
Genealogical Studies of Selected Australian Barramundi (Lates Calcarifer) Using mtDNA : Implications for Stock Transfer to the Kimberley Region of Western Australia
There are clear implications for hatchery practices and wild fishery management in the Kimberley, which leaves the present translocation of barramundi a questionable practice that should not occur unless no contravention of the management objective can be assured.
Life history variation parallels phylogeographical patterns in North American walleye (Sander vitreus) populations
Walleye (Sander vitreus) is a native fish species in North America, and its zoogeographic range covers sev- eral climatic zones. Using multivariate statistical approaches and published growth data,
Signatures of vicariance, postglacial dispersal and spawning philopatry: population genetics of the walleye Sander vitreus
Walleye genetic patterns reflect vicariance among watersheds and glacial refugia, followed by re‐colonization pathways and changing drainage connections that established modern‐day northern populations, whose separations are maintained through spawning site fidelity.
