Marine restoration is still infrequent but there is an increasing interest to repair loss of key species in local areas. If individuals of the original population are still around, transplanting individuals from another area will risk genetic contamination, for example, introducing deleterious genes. A comprehensive genetic analysis is needed to compare the genetic diversity of the two sites.

General recommendation

  • Only donor populations that are genetically close to the receiver population should be used for restoration.
