Population-specific gene expression responses to hybridization between farm and wild Atlantic salmon
Because of intrinsic differences in their genetic architectures, wild populations invaded by domesticated individuals could experience population-specific consequences following introgression by genetic material of ...
Individual variation in Atlantic salmon fertilization success: Implications for effective population size
Mating structure can influence the variance in individual reproductive success, which in turn has important implications for a population's effective size. Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) males are characterized by alternative ...
Mixed evidence for reduced local adaptation in wild salmon resulting from interbreeding with escaped farmed salmon: complexities in hybrid fitness
Interbreeding between artificially-selected and wild organisms can have negative fitness consequences for the latter. In the Northwest Atlantic, farmed Atlantic salmon recurrently escape into the wild and enter rivers ...
Avoidance of fisheries-induced evolution: management implications for catch selectivity and limit reference points
I examined how the fitness (r) associated with early-and late-maturing genotypes varies with fishing mortality (F) and age-/size-specific probability of capture. Life-history data on Newfoundland's northern Atlantic cod ...
Consequences of sexual selection for fisheries-induced evolution: an exploratory analysis
Reproductive behaviour and mating system complexity may influence fisheries-induced evolution. Mate choice and intrasexual competition might favour late-, large-maturing genotypes in contrast to the selection imposed by ...
Potential for anthropogenic disturbances to influence evolutionary change in the life history of a threatened salmonid
Although evolutionary change within most species is thought to occur slowly, recent studies have identified cases where evolutionary change has apparently occurred over a few generations. Anthropogenically altered ...
