Table 2 Results from models looking at genotype effects on maturity status at the end of the experiment and body size parameters at the beginning of the experiment. Note, the null model had a better fit than genotype for GSI

From: Development of supermale and all-male Atlantic salmon to research the vgll3 allele - puberty link
