The overall objective of the project is to assign an escaped salmon back to the farm responsible for the escape with near 100% accuracy. In this report, the potential of a set of genetic markers to assign an escaped salmon was determined for a set of 12 polymorphic microsatellite markers, provided by Nofima, and by using stochastic simulation. Also, the effect of different numbers of sires, and the effect of pooling of multiple sires in crosses was determined.
