  1. RDS and RDL, small and large fish from Ardag hatchery; ATM and ATL, average and large fish from Atlit hatchery; N, number of individuals; NA, number of alleles; NE, number of effective alleles; HO and HE, observed and expected heterozygosities; FIS, inbreeding coefficient. Parameters were obtained by AMOVA (Analysis of Molecular Variance) using GenAlEx program for codominant data. P-value for departure from Hardy Weinberg equilibrium was obtained form χ2 test calculated using also GenAlEx program.
