PCR primers were successfully designed to amplify small ND1 gene fragments for RFLP genotyping of degraded Atlantic salmon Salmo salar mtDNA. Analysis of archival scales with these primers, when existing primer sets failed, show Atlantic salmon from the George River, Quebec, to include European haplotypes and those from the Kapisidlit River, West Greenland, to be fixed for a European haplotype characteristic of Baltic populations.
