Significant Pearson correlations are coefficients greater than 0.5 derived from the principal components analysis.

SGR, specific growth rate; CF, condition factor; Ucrit,critical swimming speed; r-VSH,routine, routine ventricular stroke volume; Q̇max,maximum cardiac output; Q̇inc,increase in Q̇ during exercise; AMR, active metabolic rate; AS, aerobic scope; SFA, saturated FA; PUFA, polyunsaturated FA; n-3/n-6, ratio of total n-3 to n-6 PUFA.
