Title: Construction of a Linkage Map for the Pink Salmon Genome

Project Year and Number: 2001: 01190

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2003: 030190, 2002: 02190, 2000: 00190, 1999: 99190, 1998: 98190, 1997: 97190, 1996: 96190

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: This project will continue experiments at the Alaska SeaLife Center that apply a genetic linkage map, which was constructed during the first four years of the project, to test for effects of regions of the genome on traits that are important to recovery of pink salmon (e.g., growth and survival). The map also will be used to evaluate the potential impact of hatchery-raised fish on the fitness of wild stocks. Sexually mature adults from the 1998 and 1999 cohorts produced from wild pink salmon collected from Likes Creek are expected to return to the Alaska SeaLife Center in August 2000 and 2001. Genotypes in released fry and returning adults will be compared to test for genetic differences in marine survival and other life history traits (e.g., body size, egg number, and egg size).
