Profile updated on 27 September 2016
The Northern pike Esox lucius shows a low level of genetic differentiation throughout their distribution range in St. Lawrence River (Bosworth and Farrell 2006, Ouellet-Cauchon et al. 2014).
Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
