Effect of mating treatment on size at birth, growth rate and time to sexual maturation in F1s and F2s using linear mixed-effects models. Tank of origin was used as a random effect nested within mating treatment. Parameters are only shown for best-fitted model. Selection of best-fitted model and Akaike weights are shown in Additional file 2: Supporting Information 2.
