Data from: Supplementation stocking of lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) in small boreal lakes: ecotypes influence on growth and condition

Olivier Morissette, Pascal Sirois, Nigel P. Lester, Chris C. Wilson & Louis Bernatchez
Supplementation stocking is a commonly used management tool to sustain exploited fish populations. Possible negative consequences of supplementation on local stocks are a concern for the conservation of wild fish populations. However, the direct impacts of supplementation on life history traits of local populations have rarely been investigated. In addition, intraspecific hybridization between contrasting ecotypes (planktivorous and piscivorous) has been seldom considered in supplementation plans. Here, we combined genetic (genotype-by-sequencing analysis) and life history traits...
