The Pacific Fisher is found in two genetically isolated populations in Southern Oregon. One native and one reintroduced population. Interstate 5 creates habitat fragmentation across these two populations. We created a series of maps using GIS to determine whether or not I-5 might be the determining factor prohibiting interbreeding between these two populations. The results indicate that there are no natural barriers inhibiting gene flow and imply that the only significant barrier is the I-5.
