General description of research on brown trout population genetics:
Eleven trout population have been sampled throughout the distribution range of brown trout in Iceland both in rivers and lakes in order to study the natural genetic variation and differentiation. In the study we used 50 allozyme loci (25 allozyme systems). Other techniques have been employed in the laboratory with other species (including cDNA RFLP).
