Cod Transferrins and Genetic Isolates

  • A. Jamieson


The transferrins in the cod, Gadus morhua L. indicate genetic differences between a number of distinct stocks in different regions of the North Atlantic. The identities of the stocks are maintained by obscure isolating mechanisms which operate in the absence of any obvious physical barrier between some cod stocks spawning in relatively close proximity.
