  1. Species1 abbreviations are as follows: AS, Atlantic salmon; RT, rainbow trout; AC, Arctic charr; CS, chinook salmon; PS, pink salmon; SS, sockeye salmon. Informative2 and non-informative refers to the markers being heterozygous in one or both of the NB1 parents. Poor PCR product3 means that there was no amplification product or multiple bands that made it impossible to assign a genotype. Note that a standard PCR assay was used for all markers and no optimization was carried out. More details about the markers can be found in Additional file 1, Table S1. The primers for the markers can be found in the marker database of the Atlantic salmon genomics database [26].
