Development of Genetic Baseline Information to Support the Conservation and Management of Wild Brook Trout in North Carolina

Brook Trout Related Publications

Kazyak, D.C., Lubinski, B.A., Rash, J.M., Johnson, T.C., King, T.L. 2021. After centuries of declines, there is growing interest in conserving extant wild populations of Brook Trout Salvelinus fontinalis and reintroducing Brook Trout populations of native ancestry. A population genetic baseline can enhance conservation outcomes and promote restoration success. Consequently, it is important to document existing patterns of genetic variation across the landscape and translate these data into an approachable format for fisheries managers. We genotyped 9,507 Brook Trout representing 467 wild collections at 12 microsatellite loci to establish a genetic baseline for North Carolina, USA.
