Tribes advance DNA testing on salmon

by Joseph B. Frazier
Portland, Oregon (AP)

The Columbia Inter-Tribal Fish Commission is testing technology to hasten the identity the makeup of salmon populations to determine the mix in any sample of fish, a potentially valuable tool for managing threatened or endangered stocks.

“The process started out a couple of decades ago when we were able to process tens of samples at a time. The new technology will give fish scientists the capacity to process 9,000 genetic markers in a four-hour period,” said Phil Roger, the commission’s fish science manager.
