Biography

Barb Lubinski is a Biologist at the USGS Leetown Science Center. She assists with research on the population genetics and genomics of threatened and endangered species, including Atlantic salmon, Brook trout, Atlantic sturgeon, and other organisms. Some of the ongoing research projects Barb is involved in include determining the continent-of-origin of Atlantic salmon off the west coast of Greenland, assessing the impact of stocking on the genetics of Brook trout in North Carolina, and assigning telemetered Atlantic sturgeon captured along the eastern coast of the US to most likely stock of origin.
