Abstract

An individual river population could not be regarded as a completely genetic isolated population because of exchange of individuals with neighbouring river populations. Analysis of a correlation between geographic and genetic distance among river populations revealed three routes of homing migration for spawning. Gene constitutions of 2 river populations separated by >600km along the homing migration routes could be regarded as practically independent of each other. -from Sport Fishery Abstracts
