PostSubject: FISH BREEDING   Sat Jan 18, 2014 11:01 am

Fish breeding

After watching and reading about fish farming/breeding fish, I have notices that the people doing this get all the eggs from lots of females, but only use one male to fertilize all the eggs, so you end up with, let’s say, 100,000 or more fertilize eggs from different mothers, but all have the same father, now, if this father fish has some kind of abnormal defect, that will be pass onto all the fertilize eggs, in the wild, I have seen lots of male fish swimming around one female fish fertilising the eggs, so you end up with different gens in all fertilize eggs,

Put it like this, I order 500 2yrs old, let’s say Carp, all from the same breeding pound, different mothers but same father fish, this father fish has a defect, ie, his left dorsal fin isn’t formed properly, two year on, these fish are now 4yrs old and reading for breeding, all have a good time and lots more fish are born, now, this defeat is going to get worse as all the fish have the same genes, so, the defect is going to get bigger, so, in let’s say in 12 to 16yrs time, all the fish born will have a big left dorsal fin defect and will all swim to the left in circles,  I was wondering if this has ever been looked into,

My question is this, for all you high IQ, scientific people,

How many shades of grey are there?

just read the story in anglers mail about fish breeding, page 22, some one must have read my story i had in it about fish breeding and only using one male fish make lots of female fish happy, they have now stated that they are now using lots of male fish to fertilize the eggs, they have never stated this before, or seen it in vids, so the next vid we seen should be lots of male doing the business to the eggs,

so this is good news for people who need new fish for there lakes, no more two headed fish or missed sharp ones,


how many shades of black do the new flat screen LED TVs do
