|Abstract||In a previous study we showed that many of the morphological features of the respiratory system of GH (growth hormone) transgenic Atlantic salmon are greater than similarly sized control salmon. Here we show that the manifestation of GH transgene is similar in two different lines of GH transgenic Pacific coho salmon, but that it is very different from that in the GH transgenic Atlantic salmon. The GH transgenic Pacific coho salmon do not have a larger gill surface area than similarly sized control fish.|
