Box plot showing the total bacteria counts within the different gut sections of triploid and diploid juvenile Atlantic salmon. There was a significant difference (p < 0.05) in colony forming units (CFU) between all gut sections. Compared to diploids, triploid salmon had a statistically significantly (p < 0.05, indicated by an asterisk) greater number of bacteria within each gut section.
