On transfer to sea water for 45 days, the return of appetite was later and growth rates tended to be lower for triploid Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar, reared together with diploid Atlantic salmon. All mortalities comprised of triploid salmon (29%) and were attributable to failed smolt syndrome. No correlation was found between the growth of diploid or triploid fish in fresh water and their subsequent growth on transfer to sea water. Â© 1996 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.
