      Gilbey, John; Utne, Kjell Rong; Wennevik, Vidar; Beck, Alexander Christian; Kausrud, Kyrre Linné; Hindar, Kjetil; de Leaniz, Carlos Garcia; Cherbonnel, Corrine; Coughlan, Jamie; Cross, Tom F.; Dillane, Eileen; Ensing, Dennis; García-Vázquez, Eva; Hole, Lars Robert; Holm, Marianne; Holst, Jens Christian; Jacobsen, Jan Arge; Jensen, Arne Johan; Karlsson, Sten; Ó Maoiléidigh, Niall; Mork, Kjell Arne; Nielsen, Einar Eg; Nøttestad, Leif; Primmer, Craig R.; Prodöhl, Paulo; Prusov, Sergey; Stevens, Jamie R.; Thomas, Katie; Whelan, Ken; McGinnity, Philip; Verspoor, Eric (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The survival of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), an increasingly rare anadromous species, has declined dramatically during its marine phase, with disproportionate impacts on the poorly understood early post-smolt period. ...
    • Evaluation of genetic impact of aquaculture activities on native populations 

      Svåsand, Terje; Crosetti, Donatella; García-Vázquez, Eva; Verspoor, Eric; Bonhomme, François; Colombo, Lorenzo; Lapégue, Sylvie; Marteinsdottir, Gudrun; Olesen, Ingrid; Triantaphyllidis, Costas (ICES CM documents;2007/L:06, Working paper, 2007)
      During the past 10 years, worldwide production of farmed fish has more than doubled, with farming activities now producing half of the fish directly consumed by humans. The potential genetic effects of aquaculture on natural ...
    • Half a century of genetic interaction between farmed and wild Atlantic salmon: Status of knowledge and unanswered questions 

      Glover, Kevin; Solberg, Monica Favnebøe; McGinnity, Phil; Hindar, Kjetil; Verspoor, Eric; Coulson, Mark W.; Hansen, Michael Möller; Araki, Hitoshi; Skaala, Øystein; Svåsand, Terje (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) is one of the best researched fishes, and its aquaculture plays a global role in the blue revolution. However, since the 1970s, tens of millions of farmed salmon have escaped into the wild. ...
    • Population genetic analysis reveals a geographically limited transition zone between two genetically distinct Atlantic salmon lineages in Norway 

      Wennevik, Vidar; Sanchez, Maria Quintela; Skaala, Øystein; Verspoor, Eric; Prusov, Sergey; Glover, Kevin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Atlantic salmon is characterized by a high degree of population genetic structure throughout its native range. However, while populations inhabiting rivers in Norway and Russia make up a significant proportion of salmon ...
