SÉVIGNY, J.-M., G. ROSS, D. ARCHAMBAULT, É. PARENT, 1992. Genetic variation in Greenland halibut (Reinhardtius hippoglossoides) from the St. Lawrence system and Northwest Atlantic. CAFSAC Res. Doc., 92/99, 21 p .
An allozyme study was conducted to determine if Greenland halibut from the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Northwest Atlantic area belong to genetically differentiated populations. Genetic variations were studied at 13 loci coding for 10 proteins. Results show a low degree of genetic differentiation in this species. Genetic differentiation among age groups within sampling sites is also weak, suggesting that the observed structure is temporally stable.
