The frequency of ...Journal article
Genetic screening of farmed Atlantic salmon escapees demonstrates that triploid fish display reduced migration to freshwater Glover, Kevin; Bos, J. B.; Urdal, Kurt; Madhun, Abdullah Sami; Sørvik, Anne Grete Eide; Unneland, Laila; Seliussen, Bjørghild Breistein; Skaala, Øystein; Skilbrei, Ove Tommy; Tang, Y.; Wennevik, Vidar (Springer, 2016-05)Each year, hundreds of thousands of farmed Atlantic salmon escape from fish farms into the wild. Some of these escapees enter freshwater, and manage to interbreed with native populations. To hinder further genetic introgression ...Journal article
