Genetic determination of the growth of the guppy



Genetic determination of the growth of the guppy



Nippon Suisan Gakkaishi = Bulletin of the Japanese Society of Scientific Fisheries 59(3): 461-464



Growth curves were determined for 8 strains of guppies (Poecilia reticulata), identified by colour pattern and body size differences and enzyme polymorphism. There was a marked difference in body length between and from day 60, which became more pronounced up to day 180. Differences in body length between strains were significant at each age. Using strain comparisons, the hsuperscript 2 of body length was estimated as 0.42, 0.06, 0.71 and 0.23 at 0, 15, 30 and 45 days of age respectively.
