Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund

Chief Scientist Comments: This project will apply the newly developed linkage map for the pink salmon genome to the question of what mapped traits or genomic regions confer maximal survival. This has direct applicability to determining the potential effects of intermingling of wild and hatchery-raised fish, as occurs in Prince William Sound. In the long term, the map provides a powerful means to test for traits and to map those traits that determine growth and survival.
