Growth of fast myotomal muscle in teleosts involves the continuous production of muscle fibres until some genetically pre-determined length. The dwarf landlocked (Bleke) population of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) from Byglands-fjord, Southern Norway mature at about 25 cm fork length and reach a maximum size of only 30 cm in the wild. The maximum diameter (D(max)) of fast muscle fibres in 4-year-old Bleke salmon (25-28 cm fork length) was 118 microm and not significantly different from that… CONTINUE READING
