Hybrids

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Mayfly, Jan 11, 2005.

  1. I was always under the impression that all hybrid fish, saugeye,striper, etc, were sterile and could not reproduce in nature. Am I correct? I was told today that some may be able!!! What do you guys know about this????:confused:
     
  2. I believe that the resident saugeye expert Jim Corey will be able to help you out with that question. I am under the impression that some may be able to reproduce, although it isn't typically common.
     

  3. Saugeye are created by crossing walleye eggs with sperm from a sauger. The result is a fast growing fish that has excellent survival abilities. This also makes it ideal for stocking into Ohio reservoirs and rivers; however, saugeye can create some problems. Generally, most hybrid species do not reproduce, but saugeye do occasionally reproduce with walleye and sauger. This can create genetic problems in the fishery.
