2011 Annual Report: Genetic Assessment of Columbia River Stocks
This project combines four inter-related studies from the Fish & Wildlife Program Accords that address these current and future objectives: 1) discover and evaluate SNP markers in salmon and steelhead; 2) expand and create genetic baselines for multiple species including Chinook Salmon, steelhead, Sockeye Salmon and kokanee (O. nerka), and Coho Salmon; 3) implement Genetic Stock Identification (GSI) programs for mainstem Chinook Salmon fisheries and 4) GSI of fish passing Bonneville Dam (steelhead and Chinook).
