The recent discovery of a pike species, Esox flaviae of Esox cisalpinus ("Italian pike") native to the Italian region has fuelled debate on the conservation status of this prized game fish and apex predator. Introgressive hybridization with allochthonous Northern pike (Esox lucius, here "European pike") is one of the main threats to the genetic identity of the newly described pike. We aim to understand the underlying genomic adaptations of this species to its environment, its population structure and evolutionary relationship with European pike, through a Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) approach.
