Parasalmo mykiss (Walbaum, 1792) (Salmoniformes: Salmonidae) from the Shantar Islands: Population structure and phenetic and genetic diversity

This paper deals with the biological characteristics of the mykizha Parasalmo mykiss (Walbaum, 1792) from the Shantar Islands. On Bolshoi Shantar Island, P. mykiss inhabits only the Olenya and Srednyaya rivers out of the six rivers that have been investigated. Based on the scale structure, three phenotypes with different life-history patterns were distinguished: riverine, riverine estuarine, and estuarine. Data on distribution, size and age composition, and feeding are provided. The external body morphology and the structure of the skull bones of P. mykiss are analyzed. The phenetic relationships are examined based on the analyses of external body morphology, skull morphology, and population genetics.

Abstract

This paper deals with the biological characteristics of the mykizha Parasalmo mykiss (Walbaum, 1792) from the Shantar Islands. On Bolshoi Shantar Island, P. mykiss inhabits only the Olenya and Srednyaya rivers out of the six rivers that have been investigated. Based on the scale structure, three phenotypes with different life-history patterns were distinguished: riverine, riverine estuarine, and estuarine. Data on distribution, size and age composition, and feeding are provided. The external body morphology and the structure of the skull bones of P. mykiss are analyzed. The phenetic relationships are examined based on the analyses of external body morphology, skull morphology, and population genetics. The origin and status of Shantarian P. mykiss are discussed.
