  1. Salinity tolerance QTL associated with Na+/K+-ATPase activity (N), blood plasma osmolality (O), blood plasma Cl- concentration (Cl), gill tissue weight (G), and weight-specific growth rates at time S1 and S2. Homology assignments are based on > 2 markers (bold, italics), 2 markers (bold), or a single marker. Linkage group (LG) arms for Arctic charr are undefined. All QTL are chromosome-wide significant. Genome-wide significant QTL are underlined. Data for rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) QTL were obtained from Le Bras et al. (2011)[11] and Norman et al. (2011)[15], respectively.
