Injured Resources Addressed: Pink Salmon

Abstract: This is the final year of a project based upon experiments conducted at the Alaska SeaLife Center that use a linkage map that was constructed to test for effects of regions of the genome on traits that are important to the recovery of pink salmon (e.g., growth and survival). In summer 2001, 259 sexually mature adults were collected in Resurrection Bay from the 1999 cohort produced from wild pink salmon collected from Likes Creek. In FY 03, the analysis of the genotypes in the returning adults will be completed to test for genetic differences in marine survival and other life history traits (e.g., body, size, egg number, and egg size) and a final report/manuscript will be prepared.
