Using the six-locus model without mtDNA information, we found significant coancestry between the species for a single individual identified as belonging to the sand seatrout cluster, and an estimated proportion of silver seatrout ancestry of 0.

Genetic inbreeding (F) and relatedness (r) among pairs of individuals, and within and among groups of whales were investigated using COANCESTRY (Wang, 2011).

Patterns of genetic variability often provide evidence of relationships between populations resulting from coancestry or gene flow, and genetic divergence among populations may be used for stock identification (Shaklee et al.

In general, the degree of relatedness within a population, which is frequently expressed by average coancestry of the population, is interpreted as the expected proportion of the reduced expected heterozygosity ([H.
