Development rate has important implications for individual fitness and physiology. In salmonid fishes, development rate correlates with many traits later in life, including life history diversity, growth, and age and size at sexual maturation. In rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), a Quantitative Trait Locus (QTL) for embryonic development rate has been detected on chromosome 5 across populations. However, few candidate genes have been identified within this region. In this study, we use gene mapping, gene expression,...
