Distance transferred from the natal stream was negatively related to recovery rate (recruits per gram of juveniles released) for hatchery-reared coho salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch. This relation, which reflects the important influence of genetic adaptation and genetic differences among stocks on recovery rates and survival, should be useful in deciding whether or not to transfer fish.
