Adipocytes are found in different adipose tissue depots, mainly around abdominal organs (visceral adipose tissue), or under the skin (subcutaneous adipose tissue) and between muscle fibers in myosepta including belly flap. However, the morphological and functional differences between visceral and subcutaneous depots in Atlantic salmon is poorly understood. The main aim of this thesis was therefore to provide novel insights into the functional differences between the depots by studying differences in their gene expressions and morphologies.
