Subgroup Outcomes

Genetics/Hybrids/Landlocked Populations Subgroup

NOAA NMFS has worked with various organizations to identify individuals who possess expertise related to river herring, threats to their survival, and/or methods for assessing human and non-human impacts to river herring (e.g., connectivity, water quality/quantity, climate change, etc.) to participate on the Technical Expert Working Group (TEWG). The TEWG includes subgroups by topic to focus discussions.

Genetics/Hybrids/Landlocked Populations Subgroup considers issues related to population stock structure rangewide.  Also, this subgroup will discuss possible effects from hybridization, understanding the effects of stocking on genetic diversity, and any impacts landlocked populations may have on anadromous forms.
