Genetic Analysis Shows Wild, Hatchery Coho Differences in Mate Choices
A new study of the genetic profiles of wild and hatchery coho salmon demonstrates important distinctions in how the two types of fish form mating pairs.
The findings by Oregon State University researchers provide new insight into subtle differences between wild and hatchery fish that could lead to changes in how hatchery fish are mated to promote the success of hatchery fish and conserve and protect wild fish, the University said in a press release.
“Genes can give us insight that we could not perceive using human sensory ...
