Lipid phenotypes of families chosen for molecular analysis
Family Total Lipid (g/100 g flesh) n-3 LC-PUFA ARA
Relative (μg/mg lipid) Absolute (mg/100 g flesh) Relative (μg/mg lipid) Absolute (mg/100 g flesh)
LL 3.5 ± 0.4 105.1 ± 3.8 * 363.0 ± 30.3 3.45 ± 0.13 * 11.93 ± 1.00
LH 3.5 ± 0.7 133.8 ± 4.8 * 468.0 ± 92.9 4.25 ± 0.06 * 14.87 ± 2.94
HL 5.1 ± 0.8 83.7 ± 14.0 * 426.9 ± 103.2 2.70 ± 0.53 13.81 ± 3.80
HH 5.0 ± 0.7 112.0 ± 7.9 * 554.3 ± 50.7 3.67 ± 0.63 18.04 ± 2.09

Indicated are levels of total lipid (g/100 g flesh, wet weight), and relative and absolute contents of total n-3 LC-PUFA and of the n-6 LC-PUFA arachidonic acid (ARA) in the flesh (n = 3 pools) of the 4 Atlantic salmon families used in the transcriptomic analysis. Asterisks signify significant differences between the two families with the same total lipid content.
