:Right on. An "f3" could easily be a heterozygous salmon, which is genetically equivalent to an F1.

To be an F3 Salmon the parents would have both needed to be proved out as Super Salmons ie. F2 Salmons.


:And to finish the triad, a recessive gene produces the mutant appearance only when homozygous. A heterozygous individual looks normal.

If you think about it this way the "het" is an F1 Salmonad the Homozygous form would be a Super Salmon.


:So "heterozygous" and "homozygous" refer to whether a particular individual has one or two copies of the mutant gene.
