Genetic differentiation of sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka (Walbaum, 1792) populations of eastern Kamchatka

Genetic differentiation of sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka (Walbaum, 1792) populations of... The interpopulation differentiation of the sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka (Walbaum) from the Olyutorskiy and Karaginskiy districts and from the Kamchatka River basin was examined based on the allelic variation at eight microsatellite loci (Ots107, Oki1a, Oki1b, One104, One109, OtsG68, OtsG85, and Oki6). The genetic diversity of samples from the northern rivers was lower, compared to samples from the Kamchatka River basin. Significant heterogeneity was found in the allele-frequency distribution at microsatellite loci of sockeye salmon from the investigated localities. The degree of genetic similarity of populations corresponded to their geographic closeness. The differences between population groups greatly exceeded the level of interpopulation differentiation. The analyzed samples formed four relatively separate groups: Lake Azabachye, Kamchatka River basin, Karaginskiy area (including the Navyrinvayam River in the south of the Olyutorskiy district), and northern Olyutorskiy area. The identification likelihood estimates of eastern Kamchatkan sockeye salmon in mixed aggregations at the level of population groups were fairly high (67.2–81.8%), greatly exceeding the accuracy of identification of individual populations.
