Table 1 Summary statistics and heritabilies for the phenotypes used in this study

From: The genetic architecture of growth and fillet traits in farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)

Trait Sample Size Mean (SD) Heritability (SE) [29]
Harvest Weight 1524 2.57 (0.63) 0.52 (0.05)
Gutted Weight 1616 2.35 (0.58) 0.53 (0.05)
Gutted Yield 1447 0.92 (0.02) 0.04 (0.01)
Deheaded Weight 1604 2.06 (0.52) 0.52 (0.05)
Fillet Weight 1516 1.70 (0.42) 0.53 (0.05)
Fillet Yield 1363 0.66 (0.04) 0.05 (0.02)
Fat Percentage 1679 12.2 (5.58) 0.18 (0.03)
Fillet Colour 1322 29.0 (0.73) 0.14 (0.03)
Head Weight 1475 0.32 (0.08) 0.21 (0.03)a
Gut Weight 1447 0.42 (0.08) 0.30 (0.04)a
Body Waste Weight 1426 0.33 (0.12) 0.15 (0.02)a
Total Waste Weight 1422 0.65 (0.17) 0.32 (0.04)a
  1. Gut weight (kg) = harvest weight - gutted weight; Head weight (kg) = gutted weight - deheaded weight
  2. Waste weight (kg) = deheaded weight - fillet weight (weight of vertebrae and caudal fin); Total waste weight (kg) = head weight + body waste weight
  3. aThe heritability was estimated in this study and the used population was the same as Tsai et al. [32]
  4. : Only the number of individuals used in the calculation is shown, after removal of missing data
