Data on 3782 arctic foxes, bred on a Sniaty fox farm (Poland) in 1985-1998 were used to estimate the genetic, phenotypic and environmental trends of conformation traits. Body size (BS), colour type (CT), colour purity (CP), coat density (CD), hair length (HL), general appearance (GA) and total score (TS) were analysed. The BLUP with a single-trait animal model was used to estimate the genetic trends. The estimates of genetic and phenotypic trends were positive for BS, CT, CP, HL, GA, TS and ranged from 0.0006 to 0.0995 point/year and from 0.0100 to 0.1302 point/year, respectively, but were negative for CD (- 0.0374 point/year and - 0.0262 point/year, respectively). The environmental trends ranged from - 0.0024 point/year for CT to 0.0304 point/year for TS.
