Comparative analysis of genetic parameters and quantitative trait loci for growth traits in Fraser strain Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) reared in freshwater and brackish water environments.


To determine the potential for genetic improvement in Fraser strain Arctic charr (AC, Salvelinus alpinus), we calculated genetic parameters for BW and condition factor (K) and tested if previously identified QTL for these traits were detectable across a commercial broodstock reared in both freshwater (FRW) and brackish water (BRW). Individuals from 30 full… (More)
