Hi Ben ..you wrote "Loyalist is a pure tetraploid"

what do you mean by *PURE*?

all three cell layers are polyploid! ..or what else does *pure* mean?

Not knowing anything on matters ploidal, after the scientific meeting on the
subject in Durham and after reading these posts in the last two weeks I
ventured on the subject to a Canadian biologist. I was amazed to find out
about tremendous tetraploid salmon that will never be seen in any markets
because of their deformed heads. As the biologist told me, " Who would want
to look at these at the dinner table?"
