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

Project Year and Number: 2002: 02190

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2003: 030190, 2001: 01190, 2000: 00190, 1999: 99190, 1998: 98190, 1997: 97190, 1996: 96190

Principal Investigator (PI): Fred Allendorf, University of Montana

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Research

Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: This project will complete the analysis of experiments conducted at the Alaska SeaLife Center that use the linkage map to test for effects of regions of the genome on traits that are important to recovery of pink salmon (e.g., growth and survival). Sexually mature adults from the 1999 cohorts produced from wild pink salmon collected from Likes Creek are expected to return to Resurrection Bay in August and September 2001. Genotypes in released fry will be compared to returning adults to test for genetic differences in marine survival and other life history traits (e.g., body size, egg number, and egg size). [Note: This project, which was scheduled to close out in FY 02, is now requesting $80,300 for FY 03].
