In the article by Leunda et al. (2013), the paragraph below should be inserted on page 462 after the line ‘…to confirm the fish originated from a river in south-west England.’

“The genetic baseline used in this study for assignment represents a subset of the microsatellite database developed by Griffiths et al. (2010) and was constructed to ensure coverage of major potential source rivers. Microsatellite profiles were supplemented with genotypes for additional loci from rivers in Britain, Ireland, Spain and France, as used in the SALSEA-merge database (SALSEA consortium, unpublished data). Assignment analyses were undertaken at the level of river and to reporting regions (see Griffiths et al. 2010 for further details). We thank the SALSEA-merge genetics group for permission to utilise this resource prior to publication.”
