    Default Trout

    Can you tell if a trout is a triploid from just looking at it ? i'm pretty uneducated about this topic .

    I doubt it, would you be able to tell by looking at a man if he has a low sperm count?
    But maybe you can..

    A Triploid has a zero sperm count

    I would say that the answer is a "no".

    You can get close by a process of elimination......

    In winter it's easy to spot a male fish - a Triploid doesn't cgange colour and the jaw stays normal.

    A female fish (past puberty) will produce eggs in winter while a Triploid won't.

    Growth factor could also be an indication. Triploids grow far quicker than "normal" fish. Hard to determine, but it is an indicator.
