Jacks males spend less time at sea and typically reach maturity at smaller sizes than full-size males and females, and achieve reproductive success by “sneaking in” to fertilize eggs – often underrepresented in research studies and their contributions to future generations of fish are underappreciated.
Our results support the view that jacks produce competitively superior sperm. This discovery could have far-reaching ramifications for hatcheries that engage in random mating but do not permit jacks.
Early Life and Education
Jacks are an integral component of salmon populations but are often undersampled in studies of Reproductive Succession due to their small size and cryptic coloring, leading many researchers to dismiss them outright as potential contributors of future fish generations.
However, we found that jacks made significant contributions to reproductive success (RS). On average, their annual reproductive success rates (RS) were lower than full-size males, yet these varied across years and life history types. Furthermore, under controlled sperm competition rules jacks outcompeted hooknose sperm competitively for reproductive success, challenging the hypothesis that they compensated by producing less fit sperm; our finding may actually mirror similar strategies employed in bluegill females where sneaker males fertilize disproportionate shares of eggs (Reichard et al 2007).
