Effect of parental phenotype on dispersal, growth and maturation of offspring in wild masu salmon

Toshiaki Yamamoto, Shigeru Kitanishi & Neil Metcalfe
Offspring traits are influenced by complex interactions between parent phenotypes. However, ecological studies of these effects in animals living in their natural environment have tended to be more focussed on maternal than paternal influences. In this study, we investigated the effects of both parental phenotypes on offspring natal dispersal patterns, growth and early sexual maturity in masu salmon living in natural streams. We used wild-caught parental fish in a half-sib mating design that allowed comparison...
