Effects of environmental stress on mRNA expression levels of seven genes related to oxidative stress and growth in Atlantic salmon Salmo salar L. of farmed, hybrid and wild origin (BioMed Central, 2012-12-05)Background: Ten generations of domestication selection has caused farmed Atlantic salmon Salmo salar L. to deviate from wild salmon in a range of traits. Each year hundreds of thousands of farmed salmon escape into the ...Peer reviewedJournal article
Genetic introgression of farmed salmon in native populations: quantifying the relative influence of population size and frequency of escapees (Inter-Research, 2015-02-11)Farmed escapees may threaten the genetic integrity of native salmon populations through interbreeding. However, introgression requires survival until maturation, successful reproduction and successful early development. ...Journal article
Growth reaction norms of domesticated, wild and hybrid Atlantic salmon families in response to differing social and physical environments (BioMed Central, 2013-10-28)Background: Directional selection for growth has resulted in the 9-10th generation of domesticated Atlantic salmon Salmo salar L. outgrowing wild salmon by a ratio of approximately 3:1 when reared under standard hatchery ...Journal article
Thermal plasticity in farmed, wild and hybrid Atlantic salmon during early development: Has domestication caused divergence in low temperature tolerance? (BioMed Central, 2016-02-16)Background: In the past three decades, millions of domesticated Atlantic salmon Salmo salar L. have escaped from farms into the wild. Their offspring display reduced survival in the natural environment, which demonstrates ...Journal article
