Parentage-based Tagging Improves Escapement Estimates for ESA-listed Adult Chinook Salmon and Steelhead in the Snake River Basin

Parentage-based tagging (PBT) is a non-lethal, genetic tagging method that has been successfully applied in hatchery supplemented populations to manage hatchery broodstock and monitor hatchery harvest and straying rates. We show that PBT can also improve the accuracy of escapement estimates by...

Whole Genome Resequencing Reveals Genomic Regions Associated with Thermal Adaptation in Redband Trout

Adaptation to local environments involves evolution of ecologically important traits and underlying physiological processes. Here, we used low coverage whole‚Äźgenome resequencing (lcWGR) on individuals to identify genome regions involved in thermal adaptation in wild redband trout Oncorhynchus...
