Table 3 Descriptive statistics and estimates of heritability (h 2 ) for harvest weight (HWT), gutted weight (GWT), deheaded weight (DHWT), fillet weight (FLWT), gutted yield (GYLD), fillet yield (FLYLD), fat content (FAT) and fillet colour (COL) of Atlantic salmon

From: A SNP in the 5′ flanking region of the myostatin-1b gene is associated with harvest traits in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)
