Abstract

The aim of this project is to study ecological adaptation and evolution in the Atlantic herring throughout its distribution in the Atlantic Ocean and the Baltic Sea. An important aspect is to identify the stocks of herring that are to a certain degree reproductively isolated and which genes have contributed to the ecological adaptation.
