oa Madoqua - On the inheritance of the red colour in the Mozambique Tilapia Oreochromis mossambicus
Several options for the inheritance of the red colour in the Mozambique tilapia, Oreochromis mommbicus are discussed. Breeding with only red mutants resulted in 100% red progeny, while crossing typically coloured individuals and red mutants provided silvery coloured offspring. Interbreeding this offspring resulted in a mixture of red, red typical and typical coloured individuals. It is obvious that the red colour is not due to albinism nor is it the result of a single recessive gene.
