Columbia River Water Management Program on Lower Crab Creek’s Aquatic Ecosystem: Emphasis on Native Salmonids (Number of pages: 105) (Publication Size: 4MB)
|Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
|A study of aquatic life in Lower Crab Creek. It was conducted by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife for Ecology's Office of Columbia River. The study found that Chinook salmon in Lower Crab Creek are significantly different from interior Columbia River Basin hatchery and wild populations and have alleles that are absent from proximal populations. Lower Crab Creek Chinook salmon showed no evidence of recent founding and had genetic diversity, allelic richness, and effective population size similar to those of other Columbia River Basin Chinook salmon. The data suggest that a genetically distinct, native population of Chinook salmon inhabits Lower Crab Creek that has adapted to the rigorous environment.
