Re: F generation technical question
Hello David, As I now understand it, many people refer to wild caught fish as F0. Since the "F" stands for filia or filius, meaning daughter or son in Latin, this is now being considered a wrong designation by many people for wild caught fish (because the parents of wild caughts are unknown). Wild caughts should be refered to as G1 (generation 1) or WC (wild caught). F0 then stands for any first generation fish in a tank. You could have fish that have been line bred to the nth degree and still call them F0 if this is your starting point. F1 then becomes first generation of known parents (your F0 pair). F2 would be second generation of known parents (your F0 and F1 pairs). So, in your question, the line is broken by the female, and this is a new starting point or F0 pair. This is what I think anyway. To the list people that know better than I, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. HTH, Ron
