This paper reports the use of SNP-array technology in a cross-species study for non-ambiguous species identifications. Based on an existing SNP-array for Atlantic salmon (cross)hybridisations with samples of salmon, brown trout and rainbow trout were analyzed to identify species-specific diagnostic markers. In total 566 SNP loci were identified to be highly polymorphic across the three salmonid species providing the molecular basement for various monitoring applications in aquaculture and food industries.
